, , , ,

Gasping, I struggle toward wakefulness

Around me reality and psychosis

Vie for dominance

Music from another era

Surrounds me

A song I know

But can’t remember

The lyric fades into a distant drumming

I am running

Running to the quiet darkness

Safety found in shadows

Hiding from memories

Whiskey breath and heavy hands

The hallmark of human monsters

Who walk the paths of My Dreaming

Stalking the staccato of my turbulent heart
