I have not wandered
Into that vast expanse
So blue and deep
Disappearing into
an invisible infinity.

I’m not the warrior
Who’d risk such a feat
To wander into treachery
Surrounded by
an army of Unknown foes.

That place is for them
I’ve only seen it in my head
That’s where it will stay
Unencumbered by
The pain of really doing.

Even the thought itself
Opens a valve of dread
Pouring fear through my blood
Rendering me
Motionless, helpless, and alone.
