Dreams (01/09/03)

I had a dream last night
I was reaching for something no longer there
Crying out for something unclear
Spending eternity in desperate despair

Running through a forest of gnarled branches and thorns
My body bleeding and torn
Numb to my own wound
Focused only on what I need to find to escape my doom

Each time I thought I might have found what I seek
It escaped in endless retreat
Faceless and formless it eluded my sight
Prolonging my ever sorrowful plight

I awake feeling empty and forsaken
My infirm soul shaken
The dream is my unconscious plea
To find what I cannot see
I grieve for wanting the unknown
Until it is acknowledged I am woefully alone

Interesting dream Susan, wanting the unknown. How do you know when you've caught up with it?

Susan,
Catching up with satisfaction is not easy.
but it happens.

Midnitesun,

You know when you stop dreaming for it.

   A dream is a wish your heart makes.
   Without a dream, life is tragically diminished, a parody of itself. Even if the dream never fully materializes, the striving is what matters. Sometimes, the dream is all that remains and is preferable to that which we hold in our hands every day.
