A Birth, A Breath

A coincidence of motion
meets with the apparition of affection
to create, in one's heart
a fluttering of birth

and pounds in your ears) .

A whirlwind of stillness

.the mind reels
.the body aches

(and with realization comes hope-
and with realization comes)

To Dream a Dream

To dream a dream-
a deep day dream-
living through my day dreams:
I'm forever seeming, falling, sleeping,
spending hours lying, dreaming;
(dying slowly, not realizing)
sleeping deeper not realizing
as death arrives on his steed,
a black steed, uncompromising,
to perform a deed
(Not true nor false): but realization
sleeps with speed;
so slow the past, with realization,
becomes the dream.
As I'm forever drowning, dreaming, sleeping,
drowning in my day dreams;
such deep day dreams
can't dream to dream.
