I gaze at the jewel studded night sky and my longing gaze reminds me that its time i demarcate my boundaries yet again--there are some frontiers that even dreams are not capable of crossing.
"perhaps in another world...." i console myself.
the stars peep through the blue blanket and tease me playfully knowing that i can never reach them.
the moon like always, is singing a melancholic lullaby of how it yearns to tell my story to the world and yet is helplessly bound by the silent promise he has made to me..
and i lie awake in my bed, thinking what it would be like for the soul to fly across that huge expanse into the arms of freedom--where it truly belongs.
i am sinking..slowly..into an unknown land..waiting to hold on to that extended hand..
"just a little longer" says a voice i can barely recognise.i close my eyes refusing to wake up, afraid of losing sight of that wonderful reality where i know i belong and yearn to go back to.
but even with my eyes tightly shut, i cannot capture that ephemeral world long enough to stay in it..the beautiful vision fades away and im forced to open my eyes once again, to this harsh life of illusions..
and i realise the wait has not yet ended..its still not time for me to leave!
they tell me that the sky is my limit...
but how high can one really fly with clipped wings??
