Battle of My Dreams
 
Night after night,
as my head hits the evening pillow,
I wish the moon adieu
and close my tired eyes tight…
 
I await to blissfully nod off
into a cosmic starlit darkness,
but mixed psychedelic memories
play scene after scene throughout my mind…
As my conscious battles with my subconscious
trying to solve puzzling questions that it can’t seem to find the answers to.
 
Flabbergasted,
My mind just cannot rest….
This life, has underwent so many trying tests…
And now, sleep deprived..
I can no longer escape to that cosmic peace
that I wanted to find.
 
I’ve tried counting the stars,
I’ve tried dreaming of glorious fields of heaven
and I’ve even tried to listen for the soft classic piano
that so lightly dances upon my ears
from another worldly dimension…
 
but the memories,
They are so distraught
The battle has stolen my peace
for which I so courageously fought.
 
Winter solstice
just isn’t the same,
as my mind plays this never-ending game
where sleep never wins…
 
For the winter once carried an innocent child-like flair
with cheerful holidays dancing in the air…
But there are nights, the darkness lies upon the clouds
burying them in a sullen death-shroud.
 
Time speeds up so fast,
but then there are those times,
where the ticking of the clock just seems to forever last…
and I wish
for the shine of the sun upon a brightly lit care-free summer day
 
But now, this dream-like state continues to stay.
Give me rest upon my cosmic star,
so I can float through that peaceful star-lit darkness….
and it carries me warmly through the light
upon sunrise…
 
Rescue me from the doom of looping REM sleep…
 
Give me peace
and deliver me
everlasting
tranquility.

THE HEREAFTER

a place of wonderous daydream
beyond unlimited time and universal space
in a life hereafter…

We will sparkle with the dazzling stars
and dance with the brightest moonlight
to an infinity of everlasting love…

Will we know heaven we see it?

or shall it be beating in our eternal hearts
as a memory of home when we look into
his eyes once again?

Charade
***************************************

Crouching in a corner down a hidden alley,
hoping that it doesn’t find me again…
the darkness has been creeping,
trying to sneak in…

I’ve flipped on a light,
hoping it would mask its cold depth,
but in the silence of the echoes,
it held up its hand, trying to start a horrid fight…

tip-toeing away from the hidden alley,
I search for that golden escape path
…so many times I’ve ran…
To stay safe, I was given the ultimate secret key..

But in an unexpected moment…
the blackness takes its wings
trying to swoop in and capture me.

Time has passed…
…Ive taken time to plan the best escape..

A midnight fog, filters in through the chilled darkness,
reflecting off the night sky-
showing me the beautiful bright stars…

But my mind, understands the charade….
For what is seen, does not appear to be the truth…
It is a farce
just bait….

.Echoes of various fears ring within my ears…
Prodding and poking, trying to provoke unrealistic tears…

Darkness tries to creep in…
My mind, holding strong…
fights to win

the game.

.I was given the secret key.
…time has passed…
I am not the same,
as I was, when it last passed through these tracks…

So…carry on,
carry on through the cold tempting wind…
I will not take your bait.

…so go,
Because I will not wait…

I will not play your charade.

WhatIf

What If

What if we forgot all the strenuous turmoil?
What if trauma no longer tainted our souls?
And what if, we all could be innocent again?

….There would be a universe without havoc…
Moving…in perfect sync,
as the full moon danced brightly in line with all of our wishing stars…
and there would be no tears to cry,
or pieces of our heartbreak to pick up off of the cold ground.
Violence no longer would rule….
But –

Could we become compassionate?

In a world where we live,
where everything seems frightening and so wrong,
we question, whether or not –

Can we be strong?

What if we stood up in a crowd where everyone sits down?
What if we took the time to sing out our inspirational message,
and told everyone of our journey –
Who we are….and where and when we became to be…

Would anyone listen?

We fear the silence….
and the rejection.

What if we forgot all of the turmoil…?
What if, love were to win?

Innocence Prevailed

Upon entering a new innocent world,
A bright blinding light shone for all to see-
Laughs echoing aloud,
tears running down cheeks, flowing free.

Innocence prevailed…
Unknown to a darkness that
awaited thee.

A light flickered, blowing its fuse.
Darkness folding over,
covering all the stars…

A dull moon turned dim…
Someone closed the door,
and it was difficult to get back in.

A journey took itself to a lonely forest,
where heavy branches hung low,
and a dead silence filled the air,
which left room for hungry thoughts to come alive.

Thoughts so alive,
that they started to turn back time-
for this journey was not done.

A flicker of light splashed through the heavy trees,
cutting through the dark prison
that once encased thee…

A star found the courage to shine…
followed by more, becoming brighter
each time.

Sounds of life began to rustle,
echoing throughout a once dry land.

Finally, no longer afraid,
she took His hand…
and innocence once again,
prevailed.

JOURNEY ON
***************************

…step…step….step,
into the cool air that surrounds me above the dim stars…
Breathe…
Breathe into the silent air above the dark sky at midnight…

Stare…blink….stand…
Still.
So still.
Gather my scattered thoughts…
Invisible thoughts that come alive in my so-active non-silent mind.

Look up , so high….into the never-ending sky…
wishing for…
Hope…

Breathe…
Breathing alone,
watching my breath form life in the cool evening air
as a dark haunting fog rolls in under the moon…
It surrounds my still silhouette…
questioning my presence.

Step…pause….step…
Praying to the wishful stars above,
alone in this thoughtful lonely but comforting night
in my so active pondering mind,

Looking beyond this mysterious life…
Searching for continuous answers
that are so hard to find.

Step…
Step..
Breathe…

Dream….
Dreams dancing out of my head,
to a tune, that only my lips seem to know
from another time.
Thy lyrics are sacred…
To me, they are blind.

Step…Step…
Pause….pray.
Seek….

Seeking for life beyond,
the answers I want to know.
Need to know….
Kneel….pause….
In watchful thought.

Searching beyond a mystical mystery
that aches in my beating heart…

Breathe…
Just breathe.

Step….step….

Into an invisible world.
But I am comforted….
as I step into the shadows under the moonlight.

For I do not need a spotlight.

All I need is faith…
Answers
and for the clouds to lift
from this midnight dream…

Step…
step…

Breathe….

….All I need is to live…
and to gather the answers
that my soul so longingly aches for…

Step…
step…
Pause…

Kneel.

….dancing heartbeat.

Breathe.

….Step out of the shadows of the moonlight
and shine…under the stars….
…and tears fall…
in answer to a call …
beyond this time…..
….step…step…
Pause….

Breathe…
Breath comes alive from this searching soul…

….step…
step back under the moonlight,
stare above to the dim stars that sing to my heart…

I turn back behind the rolling fog…

And Journey On….

An Eternity

Inside an oblivion of a time trapped shell,
the wind howls and bares its soul,
to the sky that soaks up its confessions.

Vibrations of the secrets light up the stars,
as they twinkle the encrypted code of stories that are told
from the souls who reign down below.

I am the cold wind that dances through the darkness,
and the chill that sweeps beneath the feet
on a bare wooden floor.

I am the tunnel that hovers overhead,
consumed by emotions that have been
left to escape into the openness.

Anxiety, frustration, excitement, despair, happiness
and fright, tied into a ball of invisible twine,
attached to the tunnel where feelings have no end
and continue to grow
until an angry storm has an outburst.

I am but an energy, that ravishes on the soul,
that lurks to those who are weak.
The time that I have is short,
but it lengthens with each emotion
that I consume, as more bare
the deep hidden secrets
locked beneath the core
of their soul.

Their soul, is a part of the eternity,
An eternity of a time-trapped shell…

I am,
an eternity,
that keeps on waiting,
listening,
ravishing for the core
of your darkest secrets
you keep locked
far within your soul.
