break bright

all the colours drained away
as night had slowly taken day
til’ all that was left was grey upon grey

now the grey has receded to the back
and the world is spinning charcoal black
what new thing could be gained for all I lack?

one drop of yellow spilled sunlight
to clear the scales and restore my sight
a salve applied that I might break bright
