WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
Embracing Father.

Embracing Father.

A Poem by John Phoenix Hutchinson.

Have you ever had a dream as powerful as this???



Somber, I entered slumber.
Hoping to escape the pain.
Dark depression, had a hold on me.
Tender soul, brokenhearted slain.

As I fell into my dormancy.
Something happened, like never of yore.
Vibration, then hands lifting me up.
Naked, through mystical door.

Finding myself by childhood home.
Standing by pond, crystal clear.
Fishes swim with elegance and grace.
Feeding on my falling tears.

Suddenly, I hear my late Father cry out.
On a bed, he's prostrate before.
Kneeling beside, with my arms held aloft
I collapse and fall to the floor.

Awoken, by the warmth of his breath
He has entered my mind with his grace
"John do not seek darkness and death."
Weeping, we both embraced.

Waking up to a dream that feels so real and bring tears rolling down your eyes is heartbreaking. I am sad for your sorrow. You have expressed your sentiments well and have shown us the deeper side of your depression, which I know can be hard to share. This is troubling on your mind. but I am glad you were able to get it down. Thank you for sharing my friend.

This is really nostalgia and the feeling of oneness after long absent. The thought is highly articulated. Well done.

Wow! I've had such dreams- where the love is so intense it can't be described in words. Such dreams I believe really do come from the other side. well done!

Hi John,

A wonderful piece. Dreams can be so powerful and moving. I guess the subconscious mind can never be escaped and it shows us what is really powerful and significant in our lives.

Kudos. You are a fine poet and this is another marvelous addition to your repertoire.

Best regards,

yes it happens at times the dreams are so real that its confusing what the reality is and at times the dream turn out to be path changer or at least a great soother in the depressing phase of life.
