One by one, they fell silent.

One by one, they went away.

The dream flew onward, and higher,  and further out of reach.

The cold darkness engulfed me,

and the ticking of the clock

grew a little louder.

I sighed, and walked through the night after my dream.

“Surely, it will land soon.”

But I’m still walking,

and the sky is clear.
