Girl Indigo


Shattered glass sparkles
through a broken window
refracting reflections
into backlit hallways
deep, deep inside, flashing

strophic light, then dark.
A figure, a shape moves
into and out of shadow
a child, a woman reverberates
in silhouette.

Broken nail, broken heart
her hair, dyed jet black, fades
in heartbeats and tears.
She is here, she is now
screaming forever.

Dimensionless and expanding
beyond the edge of visible light
she hovers in her own luminescence
untouchable, yet yearning an embrace
she whispers, "I" and echoes.

Beyond a grasp colors fail
pastels wither and crimsons bleed
into neutral shades of gray
as she absorbs the sun
into her deepest indigo.
