I stood upon a path
A single lantern beside it
Beside me

Ahead, a ways off
I could see

In between was the path
From lantern
To lantern

Darkness looking on
To the spheres
Of illumination

Every moment not
In fire’s glow
Was hopeless

Every second without
Light on skin
Felt meaningless

I could see
Lanterns going far
Into horizons

With naught but
A black veil
In between

One thought on “Ahead
