The Distant Dreamer

my ear snakes through
to hear from a distance
like a distant dreamer,
the night is quite
melodious at night
its quietness seduces me,
without cloud over the sky
but the bare rays over the sun
i closed my eyes very closely
its blindness
and nothingness
the night soon
came to my eye shadow
the shadow
not in color to my cold feet
the justice between darkness
has narrowed
my eyes,
very closely to my arrow
than swallowed,
my foetus wandered
lonely to the womb
beneath the belly,
fluttering and dancing
to the breeze of her cold feet,
her waves beside me
her nerves blurred my inward eye
then my heart with pleasure, filled
as my blood ran through, sealed
like a distant dreamer, wheeled
to a distant giver, pealed
as i dream to a far away further
and far away, like a distant dream.
