Numberless Dreams

“I bring you with reverent hands
The books of my numberless dreams.” from The Poet to His Beloved, W. B. Yeats

Numberless Dreams ~

Night travelers, shade roamers
numberless dreams and uncountable night journeys
on the back of black Pegasus
its only a dream the pacifiers croon
and the night breed cavort with delight at this misdirection
to be in a dream is to be nearest the madness
the sleeping one dances with only his own demons
spun out of fear and broken stalks of memory
but a traveler must wrestle with all
known and unknown as the dreamscape shifts with each vision
illusions aren’t always dispersed with ease
a mere waking rueful shake
here, their claws are sharp
and things can bite which won’t let go
drag you down and down
to where there is no surfacing, no bottom
no ending to this void
in the places and spaces
of numberless dreams

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
