I wonder at times what would happen
If I just simply walked away
Turned my back on this ruddy path
Shut my door in the face of day

Would the road much less traveled
Still stretch into forever miles
Would birds still fly in stormy skies
Seek shelter on white sanded isles

Silently I sit, in darkened space
Adrift pon seas of circle-thought
And wonder if this meager raft
Is truly out of paper, wrought

Is it strong enough to bear my weight
Or will it melt into black nothing-ness
I fear those waves of fathoms deep
And the breaking weight of loneliness

If I close my eyes try to sleep
Will my demons plague the dreams
Will I be left with false respite
Waking to hear my solitary screams

If from softly parted lips, were
To escape a simple sigh
Would it float along, unheard
By the hands of distance, die

And if I could, but remove this heart
Beating true, from hollowed breast
A mind allowed an icy calm
Unneeded feelings laid to rest

I wonder if I crafted bricks of stone
If I built about me a giant wall
If I lived life in my castle strong
I wonder if Id really be missed at all

I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep
