i lost a flight,
missed an opportunity.
left the ones i love
in a foreign country.

slowly, i lead a life
of reality and once
escaping the world through
some book’s pages,

i regain a composure,
forgetting the problems
that lie somewhere in my
head and heart.

still, i have questions
stuck deep down and i
wonder how i’ll get
answers to ponder them.
