Falling Down

I saw the stars falling down
Like glowing starlings
And the swing to lead my way
To take me somewhere
Where no one else goes
A place where no one else knows
But the heavens that
Watch from above
I heard the voices
That had been locked up
For so long that they
Forgot if anything existed
I climbed every mountain
To see every path and rock
I dreamt without fear
Of a world apart from this
I held hard on-to the rope
Thrown towards me
Which brought me back to a
State knows as ‘reality’
Where one could actually
See the real color of the skies
And feel the wind on his skin
But for better or for worse
We try to see the un-real
Image of our life slip away
In an un-real world
Knows as ‘dreams’
They may give comfort to one’s heart
But they take us apart
From the real us
And thus, we become the lost wonderers
In that un-knows world
But no more persons.
