005 – I Once Was an Astronaut

I wander the night streets
Blue with ghost memories
Slinking along in the shadows

I find myself often pausing
Looking toward the starry sky
A place I once imagined I would go
And I did
At least for a moment

My longing is broken by a soft breeze
And I am again alone
Realizing I was Icarus
Traveling through a world
That no longer cares for me
