reaches

out here among the fartherest reaches

I catch glimpse of myself

a soul forlorn

locked in memories of former selves

while the trapped bird of winged flight

beats crazily inside my chest

here from my ethereal domain

I ache to watch the struggle of humans

as I sense the binary complexity

that obscures the heart of starlight

from knowing and recalling

the domicile of its true belonging

as all around the perimeters

angry gun metal clouds

scream with the pregnancy of snow

sensing the freeze

i draw close to me

all of the warmth I can find

feeling my way out of this prison of isolation

that has for so many long and weary years

kept me so very far away

from my own kind
