Like the sea-nymphs searching
For abducted Persephone
So, my soul longs to find
My stolen freedom

There are no more flights 
To explore long sought-after lands
Or exotic delicacies shared at the table
Conversations poured like fine wine into the night

Embraces have been
Swallowed by the waves of fear
Who to believe – what to believe
Frozen beneath the churning of the waters of uncertainty

Is that light I see
I reach, but cannot touch it – not yet 
I can only hope – pray
For a resurfacing
