Flying Inside Your Own Body

Your lungs fill & spread themselves,
wings of pink blood, and your bones
empty themselves and become hollow.
When you breathe in you’ll lift like a balloon
and your heart is light too & huge,
beating with pure joy, pure helium.
The sun’s white winds blow through you,
there’s nothing above you,
you see the earth now as an oval jewel,
radiant & seablue with love.
It’s only in dreams you can do this.
Waking, your heart is a shaken fist,
a fine dust clogs the air you breathe in;
the sun’s a hot copper weight pressing straight
down on the think pink rind of your skull.
It’s always the moment just before gunshot.
You try & try to rise but you cannot.

This is very good. This really expresses desires for happiness and friends well.
Madam Queen or Miss or Ms - Dreaming is a release, a resolution, and a preparation for that which we need to do. Check my 'Dream Pockets' and tell me what you think. Thanks for this perspective on dreaming that touches me on so many levels. Cheryl
Many of us have this dream both while asleep AND awake.....and yes one must believe it will get better, especially during the times when it just couldn't possibly be any worse.........This is written with an abundance of emotion and feeling. Well done...........marci.m. :)
Lolx.. That's the cruelty of life when you are not asleep...
