Enlightening Introspective

Traveling so long to get here

Becoming pictures in my head


Beads of light

Poking through

The black curtain of darkness


Becoming more and more abundant

Every moment


Feeling my heartbeat

A steady pulse

As I look up


Flickers of constant moving light

Watch over me



But a cool summer breeze

Against my skin


Will one pass by for me

So that I may make a wish




Engulfing me


Staring at pearls

In the black sea



For answers

In a dark abyss
