In the sea or in the sky
Sometimes also in your eye.
Melancholy feels like me
But energy I have plenty.
Into me you have vanished
Out of me you're astonished

What am I?

Is it... Blue

In the sea or in the sky

Both are blue

Sometimes also in your eye.

Eyes can be blue

Melancholy feels like me

Feeling blue

But energy I have plenty.

Blue energy is a type of energy 'osmatic power', or maybe related to blue light waves

Into me you have vanished

"Into the blue" = vanished

Out of me you're astonished

"Out of the blue" = astonished

  • $\begingroup$ 38 seconds - oof! We had slightly different explanations for the 'energy' line but everything else pretty much matches spot on - nice :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes only reason I was first response is Stiv spent more time typing up a better formatted answer. I knew it'd be a race so I skimped on details : ) So give him the check! $\endgroup$

You are:

BLUE

In the sea or in the sky
Sometimes also in your eye.

The sea and sky are often blue in colour, and blue eyes are common also (thanks to blue irises).

Melancholy feels like me

'Feeling blue' is a synonym for feeling sad or melancholic.

But energy I have plenty.

'Blue energy' is the energy available from the difference in salt concentration between seawater and river water (Source: Wikipedia).

Into me you have vanished
Out of me you're astonished

Something which has gone 'into the blue' has disappeared or vanished. Meanwhile, something that comes 'out of the blue' has arrived unexpectedly!
