A vapor dissipating quickly;
A wisp of smoke vanishes in the air.
The wind has a change in direction;
All the sudden you are there.
An illusion is on the horizon;
An Oasis peeking through the haze.
I squint and I can barely see it;
If I turn my head it fades away.
In the mist I can almost see you;
In the fog are you really there?
Why did you make your presence known?
Did you know I would be here?
My vision is always blurry;
My judgment is compromised.
You will never show yourself;
By omission you always lie.
I can't wait around;
I am lost inside a cloud.
Numb from wear to the core;
Silenced I cannot be loud.
For my own self preservation;
For reasons to many to list.
Though once I wanted you so;
I can't find you through this thick mist.
