What is this that hinders me,
Binds me to this spinning orb?
What is this cage of bones
and flesh which clothes with no warmth?
I can hear you,
Deep inside my head.
I know your voice,
I speak to you without words.
Can you hear me?
Where are you?
I know you’re there.
Why don’t you answer me?
Why have you placed me here?
You never returned what my extended arms yearned.
So, I raced as fast as these feet would take me.
What is the purpose of this being?
I seek you in the dark hours,
Searching, until I am overcome by vertigo.
I emerse myself within water.
Drowning my ears and taking weight away from this body?
This floating is as free as I can get to flying.
Still, hindered with mirrored stars behind me.
