Rise about the clouds

I want to tear myself from this place,
from this reality, rise up like a cloud and float away,
 melt into this humid summer night and dissolve somewhere far,
over the hills.
But I am here, my legs blocks of concrete,
my lungs empty of air, my throat burning.
There will be no floating away.
—Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
