voyageA Poem by joshua deathdealer
Untouched rose petals float on the winds of your dream,
leisurely flowing towards the burning center of this mirage,
clouds carry my hopes away across what remains of your sky.
Disintegrating rays of sunshine brighten my face as your apparition
descends to lay beside me upon our berth of spoken promises,
my aspiring hands reach to mend the cracks in your silvery skin.
Familiar conversations replay in gentler tones, while we hold
dearly onto reflections that time is so eager to eat away.
Shouts and cries cut through your lingering intoxicating scent as
they shake me in effort to wake me from these generated scenes
out of fear that I may never be able to return to harsh reality.
I have wandered aimlessly though the brightly painted fields,
sailed the raging oceans detailed on the pages of your heart
and here in the comfort of your soothing memories, I will stay.
