I could see the sky ahead for miles

Darkness falling, the Sun took to rest

The imagery I passed kept me sane

From urban sprawl to country splendor


A thermal radiation began

Suddenly the clouds began to fall

A blanket of doubt swallowed the Moon

The comfort I once had was gone


Where is my beacon?

Did the air around me just give up the fight?

I slow to a crawl

Searching for a leash to lead me to the clear


Where is my beacon?

For this light to guide me is but a candle

Now the fall hastens

I'm left to pierce the clouds with intuition


A flashing light prompted my return

As the condensation lost some weight

Too close and I'll meet an early grave

Too far and I'll just remain obscure


My eyes grew heavier with this cloud

Vacillating with chicanery

The light ahead would solve the puzzle

Pulsating to my throbbing chest


I have emerged here

A battle between nature and rolling steel

Blank without warning

There's no one to blame but the shadow of doubt


I have emerged here

The condensation still remains in my eyes

Trying my hardest

Through double vision I will make my way home
