Airport Lounge

The airport lounge

Is where bones are found

Debris of departures

Of souls unsound.

A terminal of passage

One soul’s fearless voyage

A date with destiny

Only god knows where.

The airport lounge

Is where planes sit aground

Waiting to take you

Eager to lift you.

Tarry not with your goodbyes

Dreams may yet be found

On the other side.

The airport lounge

Is where passion ends

The stark reality of metal detectors

Silently sheathes your heart.

Departure signs strewn along the way

Emblems of arms aching to embrace

Alas, the boarding gate beckons

Yawning wide

Decisions sealed.

Doors slammed shut.

Look not to where you have been

If you are to begin

Start from the end.
