goddamn reality

here in perfect silence
this pretty glimpse of memory
now fading
now gone
here in blessed focus
this iron noose of world remains
pulls me
brings me back

out in the world

I have come long ways from home
still lifetimes lay ahead

experience seems to elude me
dreams too far to touch

yet here I am
aloft in fantasy
living the way I once thought to be
free and wild

is my life so thirsty for future bliss
my body can but lag behind

O but here is where I want to be
here is where my heart can roam
