Pray not to outlive memory, but rather for memory to outlive you.


What, I wonder,
do you see
when you fall
into a dream?

Are you trapped
in human form?
Do you feel safe
within the norm?

Or do you grow wings
and start to fly
through a bright day
or starry night?

Let loose your mind,
set it free.
It will take you where
you ought to be.

Take me down
into the storm.
Into danger
or out of harm.

Is there a silence
thick as blood?
Or soft light music
coming in a flood?

Do you become
a king on high?
Or do you fall
and learn to die?

Show me what
you call sight.
Draw me to
your endless light.

Is there a blue
cloudless sky
or a dark and
dreary night?

Are there memories,
pictures of your past?
Glimpses of things
yet come to pass?

Can you take me with you
into your land of dreams?
Why don’t you take me into
your darkest fantasy?
