Dreams (How Do I Fall?)

I cannot rest

I dream and dream

But you are far

Just images of you

A recollection

In sunlight

Leaves and shadows

I sense the time

Before the fall

I climbed this hill

To search for you again

I am running

Towards the edge

Towards tomorrow

How do I fall?

And when?

Heart pounding

Hurtling through the heavens

In the blue wind

I shall melt

And vanish away in the dark

In silent wonder

In that moment

 When sleep

Becomes a shoreless ocean

I almost always

Lose myself

And I always forget

That I can never

Find my way back
