I dream of things far away. Of things I can’t touch. Of things I can barely see. Of things I should know nothing about.
It’s been this way for as long as I can remember. I know I shouldn’t be here.
Words come to me in the moonlight; visions in the stars. The dark sky, an ever changing picture, speaks. Of a time before, and a time yet to come. Riddles abound. I do not understand.
From out of the darkness, someone, somewhere whispers to me as I sleep. They beckon me to them.
I try not to listen. It is impossible. I know I cannot go.
But I want to. I wish…
I wish I could go home.
The night torments me with its truth. I know I shouldn’t be here, but I have nowhere else to go…I do not know how I came to be here, so I must stay…earth-bound.
