Dark Silence

Smaller and smaller they became

The words on the pages lost to an abyss

Each day weaker and weaker

And the words vanish

 

But the colors stay

The colors and the sound

The sound and the colors

All the same shade

Limitless yet limited

 

3 rods

Blue, green, red

1 spectrum

Mantis shrimp

 

Hundreds of cilia

One frequency

One pitch

Screaming, screaming

No words

 

Where did the words go?

Abyss, abyss, abyss

Where did I go?

Words, words, words

 

Sounds echo

Forgotten, forgotten

Unanswered, unanswered

Fleeing children

 

Lights flash red

Stop, stop, stop

Circles, circles, circles

Failure, failure, failure

 

One color

Dark

One sound

 

Silence
