About Longings

About Longings

The dust rose with colorful balloons

And sounds of the world around.

I wept in strange hands

As my fears gathered at the door.

An unheard voice wanted to take me away and I knew salvation was where I had stood,

A place long gone even from my words,

Fading yet holding me tight in its claws,

I found no other shelter under this sun

So I started trailing back into memory on a different path

Towards to white walls of my new horizon,

Silence healed for only a while when I looked for you in the lonely sky above

And traced the story of the day when I’ll see you again

For eternity.
