A bell rings in the distance,
Tolling softly in the darkening fog.
The mist swirls in around you.
Carrying you into a foreign realm.
Every noise is muffled,
Sight is restricted.
You feel the air close in around you.
Tight like binding ropes against your skin.
Just as suddenly as it began,
The air clears.
Leaving everything around you sparkling.
You can feel the difference in the earth.
Something has changed.
Lights dance in the air in front of you.
Beckoning you back into the fog.
The land of the faerie has passed by you on this night.
Carrying a piece of you away with it.
Forever calling to you.
Calling to you to join them in their everlasting summer.
Leaving you with an ache you will never be able to fill,
Never be able to understand.
You run toward the mist that steadily moves from you.
Once again you are surrounded.
The lights always dance just in front of you,
Leading you deeper,
To wander forever in the everlasting mist.
