Hope Fading

I never quite understood what waited out there

why I walked beyond the sun

digging beneath dunes of celestial deserts

looking for anything that might be worth a life of searching

All while slow skies rolled in the tidal grip of oceans

too vast to even feel in my bones

Only hope letting go, drifting away

on the breath of an aching universe

All it has to offer is that:

hope fading

But the well is deep into darkness

down into caverns where fear lives

breathing in the passage of seasons

and dreading the very thought of escape

And now I’ll know if what I’m searching for is there

when at last my lungs can draw full breath

and my eyes forget finally what it was to live in light
