On such a night
that the fog reached up and swallowed the moonlight.
into a deep sleep
and I dreamt.
I dreamt a wild dream
unconstrianed by reality or its rules.
I awoke on the edge of a cliff.
The crash of the crushing waves
calling me, like a distant cry,
to dive into the crimson depths of the unknown.
I'm gripped by the screams whispered on the wind.
In that moment I saw it, the heart of fear, my inner darkness.
A swirling vapor, dripping like molasses
like a void it drank in the light around it
creating a crown of distorted paradise.
Falling backwards, the frigid waters engulf me
Paralyzed from the shock, I felt myself sinking,
deeper into the abyss.
Around me float long forgeotten bodies,
people from my past who had faded from memory.
I struggled for the surface through my coughing and choking,
yet still it moved further away.
The corpses reached and called my name through drowned lungs, claiming me
one of their own.
The icy burn ravaged my body and my mind faded away...
I dream a wild dream.
