Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Dream Catcher


Dream catcher;
Burning them in the dark
Where the lovesick lie
What if we don't?
The lonely fault was mine
Buried under a meaningless guise

Dream catcher;
Can you catch before the fall?
And if you don't?
Would our secrets remain secrets?
Are you the kind to fall?
Or the ones to jump off?

Dream catcher;
Writhing in temporary bliss
And we revel in the ephemera
I can't keep seeing the memories
The candles float upon the water
But the light hardly shines

Dream catcher;
I can't see you
Yet the melodies reach me
I'm blinded by the shroud
I can feel your hand
But where's the warmth?

Dream catcher;
And you who slip through
A quiet dream
Hardly remembered
And yet she went quietly
But I still see all of our ghosts

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
