Images Without Light

At school one day, something isn’t right
Vaguely aware I’m not aware of time or light
And though I’ve gone here seven years
Somehow I don’t question when a brand new passageway appears

With a sudden shock, I run the corridor
Until my feet don’t touch the ground… anymore

Momentum carries me outside
I’ve travelled half a mile in one gigantic stride
But now I’d really like to land
And curl my toes against some carpet, soil or sand

I don’t even know what I’ve been flying for
And my feet don’t touch the ground… anymore

It’s clear that something is amiss
Remaining airborne ‘til I’m past the precipice
The wind is rushing past my head
And I swear that I’m awakened by the impact of my body on the bed

Now I’m afraid to try to touch the floor
Will my feet still touch the ground… anymore?
