She was left behind on the marbled staircase
Just as she had begun to climb the first step into
She could see pastels floating above her head
Escaping as she tried to hold on to them.
They floated up into the fluffy white mantle
Lingering on the horizon before gliding towards
So she stood.
One foot ready to move forward,
Then pushed back from the swirling light
Onto the frenzied patterns.
Ensnared betwixt colour and chaos
Trapped in fragmentary expression.
