Reflections

With the coming of darkness
I find myself drawn
Pulled
Beckoned
Further from home
Away from my life.

I go out
Into a quiet
Empty world.
Lights
In the distance
Offer horizons
Some reached
Some left
For another day.

Escape
Is possible
But only for a while
And soon it ends
As I am pulled
Back to the beginning.

Someday
The tether will break
And I will see the world.
