I just awoke from a fifteen hour sleep, not an everyday occurrence, yet occasionally my plight under the spell of depression, in physical manifestation. At these times I dream crystal clear and remember everything as I believe I am being shown and resolving many deep issues from past that in the end, have me cleansed of many persistent tribulations in life. What I discover is indeed valuable and often revelation, and last night was no exception.
My Coma Sleeps, to Reap those Yester-Hurts
As if my dreams in purpose guide,
each night to extremes, to coincide with past,
to rectify my fears and dreads
that haunt the caverns in my head
and leave me unresolved,
or worse, stray from paths I should have trod,
and cleanse my inner self,
from cluttered fragments of yester-hurt,
the dirt that clings to my very soul.
All those who’ve now become aloof,
who then were proof that lies echoed long,
and I do not blame them,
for their paths are set in play,
and learning they may or may not acquire,
for lies that turned them against me, were just that,
when so easily some are tainted by darkness,
and I set myself free from blame,
that others in their reign did perpetrate.
But there was a warmth in past,
relationships filled with promise that I embraced,
and time did wither them, as intentions faced
another god, one of malevolence,
and shattered I was to see such turn of face,
that in dreams now placate their decisions,
to believe lies and discard years so treasured,
for unsubstantiated words so vile,
that clung to my inner pain.
These dreams impart a warm message,
a realization of what we are capable,
blindness and decisions of culpability,
that would rings true within them,
should they face their own demons,
and here am I facing past head on,
dreams that overcome my fears,
and like a movie played before my sleeping eyes,
it bring tears to my eyes, for the cleansing of my soul.
