`\_; *\_...Waking Dream..._/*; _/'

Like a flip of a switch
and
shutdown
visions and voices fade
then
voices become disembodied
and vision surreals
allowed to just melt away
unimportant, disconnected
And as the world falls away
I contemplate my own sanity
with panic and calm
as I know
allowances to let go like this
erodes reason and will
with each instance
with each time I BECKON it...
I'm profoundly aware of its power
and promise
sweetly, alarmingly seducing me
deeper
I'm swallowed in,
with a dark and intense curiosity
I go deeper each time
each breath
riding the waves of pain
and pleasure...
What I come for,
and what makes it harder to ever leave...

And it is here
I am with you
and no one can stop me.

Very deep thanks for sharing your poem. Great Write!
Lee, another wonderful write that really got me thinking of all the waking dreams that I have. Though some have been more like nightmares and not as pleasant reading as this. Top marks and thanks for sharing my friend. David
whatever struggles we have to endure in a relationship, We would still hold onto love because I believe that this is just the way of God to teach us to be strong and faithful. As meggie said it was so very deep.... God blesses you always!
What talent you have as thispoem is quiet beautiful. A 10 rating. Rosemary
