Dream Legs

Dream Legs

I dreamed a dream quite faraway
and dreamed that I was there.
The dream unfolded
because Defeat gave me a death stare.
So I dreamed yesterday,
today with my eyes wide open
to ensure the dream sequence remained unbroken.
I dreamed my dream foolishly
as I sleepwalked on thin air
and no one was there
to make sure that I could see my way clearly.

I dreamed a dream upon my bed
a comforting place to rest my head
but then again it kept me down
and so I could not be led nor found
where my dreams wanted me to go.
Then upon a bed my dreams lay dead
to the possibilities that they had.
I wrestled with them
taunted them but it was all in vain, 
in utter confusion and pain
they would not rise in fame.
But just when I had given up
ready to bury them in defeat
a celestial being came down and said
"to live your dreams 
you must give them feet".

Control: What You Do

Control: What You Do

Can you shape the universe
with the thoughts of your mind
bend shapes out of shape
and suspend time?

Can you make the clouds
burst forth their tears
and wash away
all those wasted years?

Can you see beyond your tomorrows
make the future bright
and sing sweetlullabyes
that will let you wake up in light?

Can you forget those steps
that took you to hell
that made it necessary
for you to reprent?

Can you can you
change your world
by taking this bittersweet land
and mould them with your hands?

Still Life

Still Life

Arranged just so
frozen in the dust
of our yerteryears
forbidden to go
too far out
still life
a masterpiece
dying to breathe
the breath of life.
I take one step
to get ahead
but I am chained to my past
hooked like a drowning fish.
Will I walk on water
be pulled under?
Still life,
Too long?
In a whirlpool of doubt
I release my tears
to the four seasons of the year
the great flood has come to its end
and the ship can sail off
into the horizon of my future. 
Truly beautiful...
Completely unexpected...
