“Fade Away…”

There is something deeply satisfying to me

When the spidery lines on a map becomes real.

When a numbered road becomes a name

And name becomes a place and a memory.

I like it best on days like this,

When the sun is shining yet the clouds look angry.

With music playing in my ears,

And beauty stretching before my eyes,

The fears of the nighttime simply fade away.

Even if only for a little while…
