life in monochrome

Blindly I wander, incapable of feeling anything but
numb.
Unable to see anything but the desolate space in my cone-shaped view.

It's been some time since I took a breath,
let a crude wisp of color seep in my lungs.

In one moment past, I inhaled long and full.
I viewed the prismatic color that existed just beyond physical touch.
I infused my breath with the shades and the shapes,
a syrupy stained-glass.

If only for a moment,
If only for a moment.

    I have a hopeless niece who is suffering with a horrible disease not really of the addiction kind - yet the heavy duty meds have her there too. No words can soothe the reality of her situation which is unchangeable for her. No reaching anywhere. love, Kathy
