The world becomes silent. I feel small and insignificant in the wake of timeless giants, but self-sufficient like nothing can hold me back. Everything is precarious and while I wish to linger, I must keep moving for I don’t know what is coming behind the peaks. They embrace me in an ethereal manner. I don’t quite trust them yet I can’t stay away. They draw me like a magnet, and sometimes I suffer greatly to be next to them.
My troubles dissipate and my mind clears.
I don’t completely trust them, yet I give them all of me.
I wonder what challenges they will give me…and the rewards.
And as soon as I’m home, I lust for them with every inch of my being.
