You venture through crowded doorways
Absorbing what surrounds you
Discovering what others fail to perceive
Gaining sagacity from the beaten miles

You dream up a gratifying utopia
Indulging in your vulnerable idealism
Frolicking dizzily you fall
Arms of no one catch you

You lie frightened in the night
As darkness slithers through you
Optimism submits to a forlorn cry
Solitude consumes you
