As I stare out

Battered, words scattered

pieces of a puzzle unlocked

perfection glares upon water

I’ll never walk on.

In this attempt of living life

I fancy the waves splashing below

look close, I’m there in the undertow

trying to be a cocky kid again.

As I stare out feeling content

quickly determined this can’t be

for I’m just a molecule of dust

fighting air for privileged space.

Should this light ever go dim, or out

darkness shall be another lost friend

who finally returned home

walked out of dreams.

as I stare out
