Dreams- Dreams Of Falling To Sleep

In front of my mind in back of my eyes
and I being a child didn't have to look very far.
And then without change the great point of light,
the fuzzy white safe round colored ball.
From the time of before it took shape growing larger.
Until right before I would fall asleep then it finally burst,
and the light of white liquid,
as it covered my body like yours a cocoon.
And as it happened I knew of all that was outside.
I closed my eyes and I believed more like you.
And now everyone like me has again gone to sleep,
to old to grow and to old to know why.
That each point of light between your two eyes,
will be shown to you soon and out of that eye I see you.

    two little butterflies
    with growing wings
    in their cocoons
    dreaming the sky
    and the flowers,
    wanting to leave their
    white colored balls
    in order to find
    the sky and the flowers
    of their dreams (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
