I wave goodbye but nobody waves back. They gather as a crowd, looking at me but not really seeing me. Music plays in the background. Melancholy harmonies, tones that remind me of home, hover in the air creating the mood that was anticipated but is never welcomed.
I linger and watch their sullen faces and I struggle to block out the abrasive light. And so I wave goodbye again, hoping that just one person will glimpse my spirit and wave back.
The light seems to warm the longer I look into it. Nothing holds me anymore and I fly home.
