I am trapped between ‘realities’
One is filled with infinite hues and endless light
It is the moment before sunrise;
That breathless gray that holds the world still.
It is reflections upon water;
Dancing patterns within the blue.
It is Summer evenings
And the gentle hum of dusk.
It is that moment before I fall asleep
When a soft blanket of peace
Pulls me into a tide of dreams.
The other ‘reality’ is less kind
Where sweet sorrow becomes bitter
And eats me up inside.
It feels less life-like
With its concrete limits,
Ever-present fear and empty days.
I would like to stay in the beautiful place
When midnight’s cool breath
Feels like a veil
Allowing me to traverse the world
In the safety of the moonlit night.
There, storms thunder in my soul
And wind’s wild sweeps
Promise I can fly.
