An expanse that used to fill the world
Grows smaller with each passing step
Suffocating the lungs that once it burst
Reducing the beats of a heart that leapt

Though resplendent the views are dulled
Their beauty lost to an absent soul
Searching for meaning where it seems lost
Endless roads yet nowhere to go

Sights and sounds float by in clouds
Walking underwater but able to breathe
Struggling to care for surrounding life
Spending the day in simple daydreams
