A Poem by John P. Eiler

Inspired by "Inception"

The medicine pumps up through my veins
Ensuring that I will fall asleep
In reality I am in a van
But now in Limbo to make the leap.

My architect crushed the tall buildings
To make way for me to find the Shade
Who used to be my beloved wife
And now the sight of her I hate.

Now in front of me is my old home
Which for fifty years  I had happily lived
Then out of Limbo I had came
To have the normal life I live.

I made my way into the home
and heard the Shade crying for help
but I knew she would seduce me
then send me straight to hell.

I went into the highest floor
And there she stood with big brown eyes
She told me everything is fine
But I knew it was just all lies.

Then I noticed a storm had come
and started to tear the building apart
So my architect had shot my wife
And there she fell with a dead heart.

So me and Ariadne* jumped
and fell into the deadly storm
and so we woke in a sinking van
and swam up to the rocky shore.

Finally, I had found my kids
to see their face after five years.
I spun my top to ensure I was awake.
And it spun on for years.
