STRANGE DREAMS


  



STRANGE DREAMS

Strange dreams linger in the shadows of my memory
unwritten lines of prose and poetry frozen in space

My reason flooded by
things best left forgotten

≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈
I turned at the foot of the mountain
there was a path leading to a dark valley

A place where the sun withheld its light
wave after wave of fear squeezed my heart

I looked over my left shoulder
envisioning in my mind the dark cave

On its walls were writings in a language I did not know
I heard scuffled sounds of steps from an unseen source

≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈
With the tips of my finger I touched its lettering
it felt damp and cool

I now know what was recorded
 etched on stone forever in time

If you ask me to disclose what was written in obscurity
I will gladly comply

Strange dreams no longer linger in the shadows of my memory
For now my fear has been replaced with joy

≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈
