I float in a blurred balance of life,
Slowly falling through the dark spaces in between the light,
Filling in the blanks with my own absurd assumptions.
I swim with the current,
Basking in the fleeting peace of the world,
Flying, in search of child-like wonder.
Trying to understand,
I lock myself away,
Oddly disappointed with the loneliness that I feel.
Nonexistent walls are the hardest to break.
