rainbow

I see in another a me
Someone I wish I could be
If only I were that free
Perhaps, introspection's 
the key

A spectrum is what I 
found
Absorbing light, without 
a sound
White light is ebbing all 
around
But inside, a rainbow of 
colors abound

So what do I see when I 
look at you?
A version of me that I 
wish were true?

Nay, I recognize the 
colors within
They are there, only a 
little dim
