Seeing through dirty glasses,

There is something not real about this moment

Like looking at a reflection of a reflection of a reflection….

How do his hands reach out, 
With nothing to grasp? 

It's a lonely road, 
For a soul without purpose. 
And it's about to crumble, 
Under weightless pressure.
