To the Color Blue

As smooth as a river stone

As cold as the icy depths

Bathe me in your layers


As dark as the night

As light as the sky in day

I lose myself in your complexities


As vibrant as tanzanite

As lively as iris

You make me feel at home


You are the ocean,

Wide and endless

Full of death and despair

And brimming with possibility


With your arms wide open, welcoming

Into a vast void, saying

Fall into the abyss


You are the abyss

You are the boundless infinite

You are the sadness and the joy

You are the sum of everything
