Did you ever have those dreams

in which it wholley seemed

that you

were there

each limb

and hair

a ghost in spirit's lair

Did you look around the scape

of mind's contorted shapes

and see

them there

the figures


they whisper at your face

They trap you with their spell

thier voices echo ----

they drag

you down

the words


"i'm talking to myself"

You wish to run and flee

but they pursue with speed

and when

you turn

you're shocked

to learn

"the figures are all me"

The author's comments:

This one is confusing. Basically the dream is life and the spirits are negative thoughts and feelings. You blame the world and circumstance for your problems, but when you take a closer look you realize that you control your thoughts and your emotions. Every negative thought is you talking to yourself.
