Steps I Take

“And with each step I took,
I knew it was bringing me
closer to you.”

In that very moment, I was lost without a care in the world. At last, I could see the blazing hues of desiccated and crumbling leaves blanketing the ground. As they crunched beneath my feet, I was pulled toward something I couldn’t name. It should have bothered me, but it didn’t. Despite the darkness around me, I could see unlike I ever could before. With the chill in the air and the scent of wood smoke wafting with it, I never felt more at home before. And with each step I took, I knew it was bringing me closer to you.

How could I ever be afraid of that?
