Dreamcatcher

~*~

Ne’er spied Dreamcatcher

How he’d slip into his post

Quite still, unnoticed…

By then I’d sailed distant sleep

In hopes of romance, glory

~

Yet, ever on guard

He’s nightly at the ready

Holy net in hand

Lest terror rise to skewer

Mad nightmare carry me off

~

Along midnight’s hours

Restlessly I swim dim depths

Weightless but sinking

Blind to sea-angels, then buoyed

By feathers, dawn’s filaments

~

Lightly awakened

No darkness recollected…

By peace-breeze embraced

To Dream, Perchance In Peace

Dreaming frenziedly 

Mind rarely permitted rest

Thoughts kaleidoscope

Sleep-carousel’s ceaseless ride

Wild nights e’er uninvited

~

Where is the romance

Why horrifying spiders

Faces of abuse

And that one recurrent theme

Dusk’s unfamiliar streets…lost

~

Wake to dream of peace

Stability’s mere mirage

Quick as nap recedes
