Water Mirror- Michael Erickson

How I wish to push through to your side,

Your world seems so much wider than mine.

I always find myself waiting on the edge,

For someone to pull me in.

Bound to wonder beyond my world,

I long to feel a different star.

But alas too late I turn away,

Chained by the setting of my sun.

One day I’ll have the courage to sink my body into the depths,

And cross the bridge between our homes across a vast cavity of time.
