In the space between moments
This is an actual dream I had a couple nights ago.
Sorrow seeps in waves of pain,
Putrid black upon silver shores.
Reaching out is evil's bane,
Plaguing with cancerous sores.
The devil in angelic disguise,
Rides raven wing to take my hand.
My horrors bleed from garnet skies,
Shackling me within darkened lands.
A rainbow touches my crumbling skin,
Sending down butterflies of white.
I can feel the breath of my kin,
Shifting through my murderous nights.
The eyes of the beast pull at me,
As I fight for my lost freedom.
The sparkling lights I still see,
As I hear death's drums.
Just when the blade smashes down,
I am painfully ripped from dreams.
I glance upon my tear stained gown,
And realize things aren't as they seem.
~*Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack,
Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha
