Further Away


I am close
Everything around me
Is everything I have known
Everything I have loved
And held dear to me
For ages
I feel forever
Safe

But when life
Falls apart
And becomes dark
My mind leaves me
Everything is a mystery
My memories
Slowly fade away

They dissipate
Into thin air
I am far
The further I go
A struggle
To stay myself
I can never return
Home again
