I can no longer tell
Which is real and what is not
But, that does not matter anymore
This moment is it, this moment is now
Breathtaking, isn't it?
The blinding haze of the lights
Draws out the excitement within
Its tendrils waving rapidly inside of me
Illuminating the depths of my soul.
The doors open to reveal the other side
That I have finally made it to
Sobering is the thought of leaving
But smoking husks and breadcrumbs
Of a former part of me.
It was then that I realised
I had never truly left her
She's still here to renounce the tales and memories
That occurred right here in this building
Providing a constant reassurance
To expel the feeling that places
Lines of worry unto my brow.
All the while
The exhilarating melodic dream starts again
My heart thudding like a drum
Providing a rhythm for my wild imagination
For all things new, all things unknown.
Empty hallways surround me
Yet they dance, teeming with life
For all of those memories that seem so distant in time
I have drawn back and secured
Close to my heart.
Blissfully, I browse
Through the files of all the things I remember
Faces, places, times, lines
Flood my mind
Flood my tear ducts with liquid happiness.
As I lean on the ledge of twilight
And watch the sparks of white float like summer-birds in the night sky
I notice for the first time since my youth
The dusty footprints left behind on the moon
From those people that had a dream.
And, I smile.
I smile and wave goodbye
To all of the things
That leave me physically
But remain spiritually.
