The Kremlin’s walls


There, but only once

Enthralled, but not deeply enough

Captivated, but incompletely

Awed, but insufficiently

To you, Russia, I someday must return

For now, memories sustain me

(ICYMI) I waited

I waited

For my moment

To touch greatness

For that chance to grab the so-called brass ring

To be number one

For the spotlight to shine on me

To feel the sun’s warmth all over my body

And it never came

But in disappointment I found something else

Something more important
