If vanishing 
into thin air 
a possibility, 
would the sky 
my substance; 
and nimbus 
engulf my soul 
and Siberian birds 
take me home, 
setting sail 
on wayward winds
to unknown heavens? 

Would you notice 
I am gone 
and smile back 
at me, 
when I twinkle 
at you 
in star-studded nights 
and make a wish 
upon me 
to see me 
one last time?

An escape
into nothingness.
