`\_; *\_...Waking Dream..._/*; _/'

Rating: 4.6

Like a flip of a switch
visions and voices fade
voices become disembodied
and vision surreals
allowed to just melt away
unimportant, disconnected
And as the world falls away
I contemplate my own sanity
with panic and calm
as I know
allowances to let go like this
erodes reason and will
with each instance
with each time I BECKON it...
I'm profoundly aware of its power
and promise
sweetly, alarmingly seducing me
I'm swallowed in,
with a dark and intense curiosity
I go deeper each time
each breath
riding the waves of pain
and pleasure...
What I come for,
and what makes it harder to ever leave...

And it is here
I am with you
and no one can stop me.

Inveteratingly poignant work, young lady, as well as an excellent choice of subject matter.The Salvatore Dali-esque presentations you introduce create explosively inventive scenarios for your readers to muse on, and conclude upon for their own individual mind-pleasure. Quality versing...but of course...as what else could one have possibly expected, had they ever read you before today. Glad i caught you on my mini visit, this Saturaday afternoon.Be Well Lee! ~ ~ ~

The greatest things said are those said with passion and purpose... you have always been one to articulate with such a grace, I don't know of many that could compare... it's a rare gift that should be published with those few I hold that high.. Love you!

Lee, another wonderful write that really got me thinking of all the waking dreams that I have. Though some have been more like nightmares and not as pleasant reading as this. Top marks and thanks for sharing my friend. David

whatever struggles we have to endure in a relationship, We would still hold onto love because I believe that this is just the way of God to teach us to be strong and faithful. As meggie said it was so very deep.... God blesses you always!
