my voice was ringing out in all directions
full as the void is
strong as a candle is
determined like the wind
the echo was as always
wet like tears
so Floundered it had been

we were crossing out an ocean
with no safe place to put our feet
about to fall
it seemed like a long journey
now seems endless
with no such hint as how to go
blind like stars
still trying to wash darkness
off a dark moonless night

so much it was monochrome
that heart we followed
