A Million Miles Away


I often see myself from a million miles away.

You would think all I see is a speck, if anything, nothing.

But a million miles sure is closer then you think.

My fingers can feel my face.

My lips can feel my breath.

A million miles isn’t as far as I imagined.

When I open my eyes, all I see is darkness.

When I shut my eyes, I can see my self.

I’ve been searching for myself for a lifetime.

Who would’ve known finding myself?

Would mean to cut the world off with darkness.

I often see my self a million miles away.

With my eyes shut, I see myself clearer from a million miles away.
