The Irony Of Dreaming Is Dying - Poem by Emily Myers

The starfish cry in terror, afraid to reminisce
Memories swirl around them, secrets clutched between their lips
Slate gray waters churn and burn them, icy to the skin
Tossed upon the shore the panic suddenly sets in
A single ray of darkness lands upon the horrifying scene
While a shadow full of light illuminates the dream
