Not this far. . .

I never knew I would survive

Beyond a barrier

Self conceived and self imposed

So long ago

That empty pages found a way

To mock my delusion,

Imitating the nothingness

Of anticipated emptiness.

Now these words . . .

I never knew I could revive

An unknown continent

Remembered, yet emerging

So far away

That silent chambers now resound

To shape a new perception,

Celebrating the resonance . . .

Restoring such abundant songs!
