Zero Visibility

The sky cried “mutiny”
The blue jumped ship
Into a sea of white
And now it covers me
Like waves of pale
Awash across the light

The sun is drowning in
A tidal wave
Of color-vacant hues
The waters overhead
Have swallowed up
The last and best of blue

And we are left here
In zero visibility
A quiet rest where
The atmosphere collapsed
I must confess: here
In zero visibility
I’m better dressed for
My disappearing act

Beneath the vapor
In zero visibility
The clouds have anchored
The buildings fade to shapes
I want to stay here
In zero visibility
To hide away here
In blankets of the grey

  1. your wording at the end or your poem is a desire that I have had in my life before as well. Where I just want to be done with all the problems. You have a beautiful way with words. Thank you for sharing.

  2. dark poem again, in the deepest reaches of our subconscious are thoughts that fuel poetry. this poem reminds me of a dark cold day when the sun is covered by clouds, bleak and gloomy with impending rain, but rain never comes.
