Far away

I hold you

unopened in my hands

and wonder

‘where will I go?’


Inside, you are alive

ready to take me

to a world

far away from mine.


I will dive in

and sink deep


and be absorbed.


I will wander

through your rooms

a shadow

on every page turned.


And when the journey ends

I will mourn all I have read

lived in my head

and taken to my heart.

Writing along with prompt-a-day over at write alm; today’s is ‘far away’

  1. I really enjoy the vulnerability shown in this poetic prose. Being far away sometimes can get you closer to where you belong.
