key to the willow pt X

he woke
wracked with pain
unaware
of where
he had fallen
he remembered the feeling
of stomach
in his throat
as the vacuum of space
wrapped around him
like a lover’s embrace

he was
surrounded
by darkness
flat
on his back

slowly
he got up
craned his neck
to see a spot
of blue
far
above him
for what else
could he expect
after so great
a fall
than to have to
climb back
up

all he recalled
from the vertigo
of spinning through space
was faerie wings
spiralling
ever upward
as he flew
ever down

as he made his way
painfully
one hand
over the other
towards the light
he remembered
the song
that caught his ear
resolve
flooded through him
as he climbed

he would find
the source
of that haunting melody

it felt
as if it was
what
he was destined for
