I’m sitting here comfortably on my couch. The lights are flickering outside, it is almost dawn and I cannot sleep.
I’m waiting. It’s late today.
It always comes, I always wait.
Febrile excitement comes up to my head, spinning my world.
Is it coming today? Maybe it’s not coming? Should I go look again? Is it that cloud that hides it? What am I going to do if it’s not coming? Should I go look ag….Ohhhh, HERE IT IS!
Its face is pale, its eyes are dark, its light is blue. Its light, ohhh, Her light, like nothing else. It comes to me, embraces me.
I reach, and reach, and reach. I cannot touch.
