Something to Hold My Gaze
All around lights dance, weaving in between,
Casting dark shadows throughout lifeless trees.
Bright orbs gather as I remain unseen,
Listening, plucking bits of chants from the breeze.
Even though water flows in streams nearby,
The world around seems to slow, even halt.
Creatures quiet as vast clouds fill the sky,
The glimmering lights outwardly at fault.
I know it is unwise to linger here,
Spying upon a most eerie splendor.
I've not long before it is known I am near,
Rushing forth I willingly surrender.
A surge of tremendous pain proves me wrong,
Revealing to me that i don't belong.
