The Colors Fade Away for Blogophilia 50.6
my life stretched out before me
neverending in its wanting...
the colors fade away, laughing as
they recede into the night.
What am I supposed to do now.....without you?
Beyond the veil I hear you whisper,
"come join me"
but I turn away from that temptation;
despite my heart breaking...
the wall is back in place.
When it hurts, you know it's the right thing.
I'm waiting for the colors
to fade back into my life,
for you, to fade back into my life.
The wall begs to be tumbled down
But all that's left is a blind reflection.

For my virtual reality effect (the ability to share digital files effortlessly via the internet), here is a youtube video of the song that inspired this, "Michigan" by The Milk Carton Kids.
My guilty pleasure.....I think you all know what that is.
