Magic  

Monday, January 20, 2020

 

I am a traveller escaping reality settings

A true escape artist emanated from the darkness

Longing to discover new roads

Navigated by dimensions not yet seen

It is Between open borders and Isolation

where I become aware of my existence

The In-Between world is my home

Moving and staying

Staying and moving

Reconstructing the reality I find myself in

Locked in dependency

Trying to break out

A new skin for the soul to wear

Seeking morality

Through the eyes of others, I see myself

My existence

My presence

My environment

My skin

Imagining the future

Going elsewhere

My sight made out of choices

I haven’t been there before

That is where the magic happens.
