Spinning, floating, flying, exhilarated. Lightspeed. Breathless... I
see sparks of colour, feel them inside me, and I'm letting go...
The vision stays with me.
Whether I'm asleep or awake, I see you; I'm waking up; colours. I
can see colours. Just a chink of light... a thin beam, searching me
out, falling on my face like gold. Colours.
It was darkness before I saw you. I made the world black. It was
night-time, so I slept. But you are colour. Purples and oranges and
peaches... draped in black! All in black!
My daytime, clothed in night! You fell like a star, flashing your
beauty... your eyes. Your colour.
Can this be real. I reach out - if I touch, will you be solid and
warm under my hand? Or will I pass through you, you fade to nothing
and return me to darkness? I am afraid, yes; afraid to see you
disappear if I try to touch. There is nothing but reality and
illusion; which are you?
Your colours. I didn't mean to linger around them; but I did. I let
you invade me, permeate me, so now I'm yours and you can do as you
I see you shine in the darkness. I reflect your colours. Then you're
gone again... but I can see the glow of your brightness still...
I often think you came here just for me, to show me your light then
take it from my grasp, leave me in the darkness again. A glimpse of
brightness to show me how wrong I was to choose the dark, then those
fragments of colour snatched from me to punish my choice.
Was it my choice?
I know it was dark before you came, but was it my darkness?
I can feel you beside me - radiating your sunshine, letting me share
it for a while. Show me the beauty at our feet, all for us; silence.
I look at you: beauty; nobility; light; love.
Yes. Love. You brought dawn to my darkness. You're gone again now,
but I know now that it is not punishment to shower your few shards of
twilight upon me - but pure love. All you can give, until I follow
you. All I can take, until I accept all the wonders you offer.
I never intended to leave that darkness, I see now; but now I will.
I know now. You are real; I awake from my dark dreams of night-time
and let you take me with you. I reach - touch - hold your dazzling
I won't let go again.
