Dark Sleep

Strayed from the straight path… impatiently plucked many dandelions before their time

Trampled the hearts of many lilies…smothered and weeded out many violets striving to find

Something soft and delicate in the rough wilderness…within a world of entangling vines

Thorn’s piercing my heart, for the soft touch of the wild rose petals in bloom to be mine

Wild Red rose…a blazing sun in the dessert, provoking the thirst that only its sweet nectar could quench

Sought only a quench when dancing, dehydrated, beneath the sun rays...and ended up drenched

Devoured the waterfall, while suffocating on sand when feasting off of the mirage inch by inch

Voyaged through the Unknown, oblivious to the name of love carved, by a previous drifter, into a man-made bench

Figured I may as well sit for a while, slowed down and began to notice the beauty of nature often neglected in the obsession for something so surreal

Fought in my sleep to wake up to a dream, fatigued, I was no match for the nightmare that left me in a state of paralysis, couldn’t move only think of the pain numbing my will

Silently screaming “JESUS”, fearing that some demonic force had me pinned…for what was once a nurturing crib had become a suffocating hearse…buried alive in my own conviction

Beneath soft red roses with piercing thorns, that only bloomed to puncture the heart, left to slowly bleed all alone in this cruel, dark, and lonely dimension

Where prince charming creeps in the Cinderella's window to rescue her, only to deliver her to the inferno within a throbbing temple, in which an evil queen sits on his heart ruling the throne

Where brother and sister come into the gingerbread house they call home all alone, and the evil witch that bore them seeks to bake and devour them til their innocence is gone

Where you were free to find your own way, pick up all your heart desired, and all your heart desired you were forbidden to keep

Felt a gentle shake from an angel…and I awoke for the first time, finally escaping the dark sleep…
