Inception (My Desolation)

You unfurled me

Softly, like a blossom

From the darkness

I was blooming

Beneath your summer skies

While in the shadows

You were slowly creating

Repainting my colours

In the varied shades of my fall

Oblivious to my fragility

I was like a snowflake

Sparkling on a shaft of sunlight

Unaware that I was already there

On the long winding road

From the inception

Of my desolation
