Painting a Mystery

October 1, 2007 § Leave a comment

Far from my bed,

I slipped into a dream…

I arose empty-hearted

on my knees.

 

Looking around me…

Stranded

in the middle of the ocean…

waiting.

 

Wrapped in a torn gown

in the dark distance…

I see someone

gravitate towards me.

 

His dark raven hair…

The eclipse of the moon

cast as shadow on his face.

 

His arms

ready to wrap around me…

 

In the well of his love

lies a keychain,

…descending fast

in my dream.

 

Under my sheets,

I searched

for a million miles.

 

Right before me …

stands the dream

upside down,

turned around…

in the painting

fallen from the wall.

 

I hear his heartbeat,

faster and faster.

 

Two parallel waves

intersect

and I am breathing

on the other side of this wall.
