Goodbye - Poem by James Vaughn

Staring bleakly into a world with no color brought a tear that seared my spirit. The colors of music, vibrant and soothing, fell flat on my deaf ears. The world had become a smoldering effigy of things I had known.

Slowly I made my way to the edge of the chasm which grew wider with my thoughts of disillusionment; I stared down at the raging waters of my thoughts wishing to remember the colors.

I turned and walked away from the abyss vowing to not look back. I walked through a forest of self deception, watching as the foliage hung lifeless from the withered dark branches. Fauna became twisted clumps as I trekked along.

This world, absent of the things I felt, was morose and unyielding. Numbness prevented me from feeling solitude, yet I felt alone in the barrenness of my thoughts. I clamor for repatriation with the colors that fed my inner being.

Gradually the tentacles of awareness crept past my despair and I saw that I had seen color in its untainted form it was a dark deep blue that radiated from an unknowable portion of my mind caused by remorse for saying goodbye.
