Surrender

Slipping behind
wandering off on my own path
letting it all go
I wander this foggy avenue
going nowhere
not caring
just being
no beginning
no end
tears ride
at the edges
threatening a storm
but staying in the distance
like the thunderheads
rising off far away mountains
sometimes bringing their torrents
other times melting off into the sunset
someday I'll return
pound my feet in the sand
dance my song upon the earth
but for tonight
it's the sweet surrender
into nothingness
