Eventide

–A navigation

Into the darkness, I fall.

Hurtling through dreamscapes
that crash into one another…with sound and fury.

They tell the story of what was, what is
and what will be.

Ever deeper I fall.
Lurching through an obstacle course rife with ghosts
that stay with me…and stay, and stay.

They reach out, grasping and clawing
but I am nimble…and surefooted as I flee.

Deeper still, I fall.
Floating now, “in a most peculiar way”
until I wake…to the same gray as yesterday.

But I’m not ready for the light, as it’s the night
that calls to me.
