No Return


no return

i once sat dreaming
in the middle of the day
wisps of forgotten fantasy
rose up to greet me
friends i’d thought lost
family turned aside
for that brief moment
all was well again
what a shame
what a shame
frozen time had to pass
back in my life
enveloped in grief
hometown in ashes
dust beneath my feet
