Mirage

I walked hand in hand with a ghost

suspended together in time

above a thousand worlds passing us by

happy to watch strange suns rise and fall

as the road home dissolved into stars

When the mirage faded

those walls I’d built to house it were a prison

and the key to my cell was already lost

far below beneath the ocean waves

Inspired somewhat by the Andrei Tarkovsky movie (and the Stanislaw Lem book) Solaris
