Dreams I

I dreamt last night.
A vivid dream stolen from my sleeplessness.
I don't dream very often anymore -
Or at least I don't remember my dreams...
As soon as I woke I wrote these words;
Not an exact description of the visual dream
But more the intense feelings that engulfed me.




the air is heavy and pressurised,
the sea turbulent
and the land waterlogged with tears.
i sit within my gilded cage
flightless,
dreamless,
forgotten.
i watch the storm
approach,
engulf
and continue on.
yet it never truly moves on.
never ceasing,
never easing,
life carries on
without me.
i am flightless,
my dreams lying
broken
around me.
