When did this awful day begin?
Every dark moment relentlessly follows another.
I found another painful reminder today.
Each day life exacts a toll on me.
I awake to an untamed sky.
A storm was near as I fled.
My terrestrial life spins with the stars.
I may see the sun yet cannot enjoy its warmth.
I hope for release from the world’s clutches.
I desperately need freedom from the chain.
A direct challenge will not defeat me.
Time is more subtle and it binds me.
I try to fill my mind with hope.
I find unanswered questions wherever I turn.
I might remember the where and how.
I do know the when, but cannot return.
