muted

beneath vibrant rays of color
gray blue white lie muted,
forgotten – the shadow continues to follow –
there is a fear that lurks
beneath the water, they wait
like a shark, they hold your soul within their teeth
muted, you are pulled underwater
(is this what betrayal looks like?)
there is no sound as you slowly sink,
searching – for something that doesn’t exist –
your reflection is nothing – space devoid of breath –
your cup half empty, tea leaves swirling
beneath muted blue and grey,
you look for your shadow
held captive by your fears.
