I feel the passing of lights.
As I glide across the night
flowing across the stars
in this darkness of unknown.
I see not what I have left,
only that which is before me
not controlling my direction
only watching as it passes me by.
In delightment I see an end to my pain
This dream of control and disdain
only to reach what I thought was the end.
To start all over again.

hi spiked,

I enjoyed this, Spike! Well done!

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Thank You all.
Feels good to finally write and be read by such wonderful writers who understand.
Will use this as a release to my writing needs for now on.
Again thanks
