Dolor

my sadness is the 
red orange yellow
bleeding into each other
streaking across the lapis lazuli sky
as the sun sets in the horizon

my melancholy
is the ebony platinum silk
the muted cloak that drapes
over the earth in
her instance of ethereal solitude

as my sights feast
on these exquisite images
my insides ache
keeping these feelings
from breaking the seams
overflowing
inundating rivers
of listless fervor

this tired soul yearns to taste life again
