A Journey

A Journey

A Poem by Kate

I'm running through forests in my mind, i'm skating on golden ponds.
I finally have you to myself, but only until dawn.
Our night begins under milky twilight, my hand fits into yours.
We journey across the unknown land, we wade through out the shores.
The cool night breeze blows gently first, but harder as we run.
Our time together will disappear as the night sky meets the sun.
We don't look back as we venture on, lost in the midnight blue.
Our laughter plays the only song, we have the heart to dance to.
Everything feels safer in the secrecy of night,
Our hopes and fears feel shameful in the broad and burning daylight.
I see the intensifying horizon, glowing pink and yellow and red,
Early morn is coming, and with it a sense of dread.
As the seconds slip by, I realize it's time, to the "real world" I must return,
As the song birds cry, during the day all the while, to be in the night is what I yearn.

Every journey in our dreams is telling us something about reality. But cracking its cryptic message is difficult. Very nicely written.
