The Gray

Written by: Emily Schaffer

The dark, the black,
The pain, the lack.

Your absence, your unknown love,
A haunted moore, a dead cove.

The light, the white,
Your face, your sight.

Your slight presence, your friendship,
A small part, just a sip.

The dusk, the gray,
A struggle, no say.

The love, the pain,
The hope, is it all in vain?
