Hiraeth

There’s an ache. A shadow in my heart. For I am bound by time and space and I can never return to those times and those places.

The shadow falls deep and dark.

People whom I never loved. Light spilling onto the front porch of a home that was never mine.

If only I had known then what I know now.

Days that never were. Love that never was.

I crane my head around, peering into the past. Wishing. Hoping. Dreaming.

But the shadow has already fallen.

So I keep pressing forward, still onward, the shadow ever in my wake.
