Dream Sinking…


Like a leaf,

I float down on a gentle breeze

falling and splashing

Into the embrace of

my watery lover…

Smoothing the hair from my brow,

she pulls me down into

her cool embrace..

She fills my lungs

and gives me dreams..

so many sweet sweet dreams…

Visions of a new today,

and of a better tomorrow…

Till I no longer remember

why I’m here…

If I’m alive…

who I


or what I ever
