Caught between two planes of existence, slumbers promise a far of lie, lost within the realms of my dreams all fingers, eyes, smiles and presence, held captive within your essence as spectres draw me from my sleep fingers cold dragging, pulling gasping as touch becomes real and I am awake, in the darkness of eternity, caught between the two planes of existence, again and again and again you are there, waiting for me to dream…. again and again and again they are there waiting to pull me from my love.
I wake in the pits of lucidity The heavy weight drowning me Suffocating on air as my blood becomes lead, and I am falling further, my axis pulling, screaming, crashing. I feel the cat laying across my hip, I feel the cold air against my skin, I hear the echo of a tv the whir of the fridge… And I am there, among the white lights, that become a rabbit that become crystals that become diamonds and still I am drowning. I hear the voices in my head whispering wake up, whispering come deeper and I know I am dreaming, I know I have slipped between the cracks into lucidity. I know my night will be filled now with an acidic aura Plunging me through a labyrinth of suffocation, color and drowning so I wake, pull myself from the claws of fantasy, spill my thoughts onto the page and hope I have somehow discovered the reset button before I dive mind first back Into the world of sleep.
Coldness seeps in beneath the covers, like a long forgotten lover. Stroking my skin before travelling within. It pulls me from my vivid dreams Lost now what those images mean. As the cold whispers closely in my ear declarations of love promises only I hear.
Sleep seems to evade me lately like the plague, my dreams cloaked in darkness and vague. But i’m still standing, And landing, On my own two feet, And from here, Deep in the depths of despair, I can hear my beat, Calling my name, pushing me on, Always the same, Every path has a reason, Keep going through the seasons, Every fight, Will eventually bring light. Believe in yourself, Believe you are right, And In the Darkness Of the Night Awake and alone, Know you were dreaming Of your future throne.
For a moment I forget to breathe My body is stilled beyond sight Dreams whisper, reality screams darkness floods the thin veil suffocating weight, fighting, voice stolen breaking, nothing Illusion, delusion, breathing. Waking…
red numbers tell me tonight is lost, four more hours till dawn I count the stars I cannot find Selene.
I hear the howling winds they drag me from my slumber, Trees screaming, leaves pleading, debris flying, Rain falling, heavy, denting, slamming on windowpane, Where now is Selene among this raging storm, I search for calm and find only the descent of crimson mist, I search for light… But the soul craves darkness Which has long arrived, I search for hope but Pandora was left astray, unlocked… I hear the startling call of objects dragged through the storms mouth, teeth bared, blood dripping, I hear the emptiness of atoms the raging storms of nature the familiarity of night sat alone, as insomnia Kisses away the shadows that haunt.
