Trapped within a crowd of hellish strangers
I shy away as they vindictively look into my eyes and
Presumptuously, steal my thoughts-
Laughter fills the air- as
Their voices terrorize- simultaneously the voices inside of my mind echo in an
Attempt to comfort, to placate and to induce serenity-
Those days have returned where I have locked myself away and
Shut the world out- comforting thoughts and
Recollections – remembering the past- in the instance where
My noble goddess ruled- gentle and trustworthy,
That magical land where the waterfall sparkled
In the intense sunlight while a gentle breeze
Played music as would a violin concerto’s
Melodious, tuneful crescendo- rocking me into a
Peaceful dream state- memories fond and beguiling,
As angelic souls would dance with the motion of
Branches on flowering trees would sway in the cool and captivating zephyr-
A circle dance it was and I would stand in the center
Consuming its magical effect- I would fall into a serene trance-
Dream on, dream on, the voices command-
From a reverie I hardly dare to awaken?
To awaken and open my eyes to the
Dank, dark surrounding terror and all I can do is to scream out in fear?
Too many people- Satan’s children- ruthless and
Born under a different star- a star that shines upon
An instant of lunacy- all I can do is to close my eyes and to
Close my mind’s doors to veracity, board my phantasmal vessel and
To sail away to the land I have fabricated inside of the world of my thoughts-
Dream on, dream on, the voices command- I shut my eyes and
I am gone- I open my eyes and rejoice in the light of my own star-
Shining upon that miraculous waterfall- I stand and let the water
Rain down upon me- washing away my fears and cleansing my soul-
As I lock the door of my imagination behind me-
Fall into that serene trance once again – somewhere in the distance
I hear merciless laughter fading away into the darkness of reality, but
I have found the light and that key to the door of my imagination is now buried and
Unreachable- fantasy has become reality in my minds eyes and it has been said that
Believing one’s dreams are reality- is as being saved and
Salvation has never appeared so beautiful…
