The color of emptiness

I woke up this morning and there was nothing to see
Although I saw a squirrel in a gigantic tree
And a vague path in the impenetrable woodland
My senses went numb and I just couldn’t understand

I woke up this morning and there was nowhere to go
I enjoyed the pre-dawn with its sweltering aglow
And contemplated what this despairing day would bring
In the certainty that I was losing everything

I woke up this morning and there was naught to recall
The pitch-black night took my yearning heart once and for all
With an obvious striking and doleful solitariness
The one thing I saw was the color of emptiness
