THE WANDERER

THE WANDERER

and then I thought
I would never find you
that it was all lies
that after losing you
so long ago
I would never walk
our halls again
to be with you
never find you in the firelight
as you had always been
that I would never
come home

that the grey-eyed one
who promised me
a nothingness
an unreality

after all this time
all this wandering
you were gone
the only thing
that inspired me

and I stood there
beneath the sky
the stretching sea
lifeless as her gaze
cold as the distance
that gaped before me
tears
wet
at my feet
