-This Selfish Question-

It seems as though you lost your way home 
So where was it anyways? 

I followed the lights that flew in this direction 
Until a varying distraction of shapes displayed 
In a haze became a magnificent glow of 
violent displeasure. 

So abrupt was this vanishing treasure 
As was the taste, erased. 
Lost in the silence of sound 
Above me was a reflection 
That mirrored a sort of map on the ground 

Inside of myself I screamed, I must find a way out! 
Now each step is a trap, but this pain beckons me 
to push past the words that follow 

As I run my finger down the center of this page 
I remember the beginning was the future from which I came 
Overwhelmed by the quest in the connection 
Dissecting the end was in question 

Then in a wave of relief it all made sense 
As the lights formed in a linear array 
That my addiction to placebos led me to this runway 
Where I alone had faith, I'd catch this plane that I had chased
