Empurpled Melody @OminousHallways

Swells of quietude drift


Along the lava plains


And deep in ocean trenches


Where nothing exists


But monochrome dreams


And monotone drones


I drift in the inky black


Ushered away from all I know


A faint pinpoint of light receding


I find pressure squeezing me


Gently at first


Then harder, then too hard


I feel my very being


Start to creak and crack


The future melts into the past


The blank slate of nothingness


Offers me its chilly embrace


And the void is all I can see


But then a small ray


Of distant light intensifies


As the crushing forces steel me


First I see intense colors


The emptiness empurpled


Into violent violet, lavender


My senses awaken


With perfume-like flushes


Of fragrant eucalyptus


I find a surprising well


Of strength and fortitude


A striking unquenched will to be


I step forward tentatively


Onto lush grass amid brilliant wildflowers


In an unending meadow


Life is mine to take and hold


And even if it’s small and fragile


It is smooth and warm and lustrous


From it I can draw forth


A brief but beautiful melody


That for now is mine to sing
