Continuously wandering down the jagged concrete stairs.
My nomadic ways lead me to unanticipated adventures.
The almost infinite stairs decease to somber stars and immeasurable waters.
I stride towards the perimeter, sensation of the bitter waves leads to a chill.
A shadow approaches, closer and closer, swimming gracefully along the timid waves.
Without thought I reach into the darkness, grabbing a hold of cold metal.
Wooden with trim of brass, I step into the diminutive boat.
Soaring along the abyss, watching the stars overtake the sky.
Open waters diminish, trees of vibrant emerald and jade droop over my head.
Lifeless body of water now filled with serene voices and playful motions.
Almost missing the silence, it almost immediately reappears.
Back to never ending waters, though this time I’m not lost in an abyss.
Unlike before the water illuminates my dreams and aspirations.
My demeanor is destroyed to be rebuilt again.
Peace and serenity flow through my veins allowing my heart to beat slowly.
Eyes locked on the crater filled orb illuminating the sky.
