Lighthouse

Peering through a crack

In the broken cement wall

That envelopes me entirely

I peer out occasionally

Into the world beyond

Beyond the weathered, broken, crumbling tower

Alone on its island

Surrounded by an ocean of deep unkown

Once a beacon amongst the darkness

The light faded

The glass shattered

Beyond the gloomy monochromatic sky

Beyond the razor wire confines

A light appears amongst the dense forest

Full of darkness. Wonder. Danger.

Dancing and twirling over and around the jagged, dead branches

When the world turns black and cold

I wait with anticipation

For the light to reappear

Sometimes it doesn’t show

Sometimes it moves

I know there is somebody out there

One day I will find you.
