The Shape of Moonlight

I saw you as you once were

a reflection in a blade raised against the night

a being of moonlight in a distant world

smiling to yourself at some mystery

a smile that belonged out among the stars

With that blade I might open a vein

and ride a river of blood to you

but the night is a cruel fiend

and the darkness leaves me cowering

aching to cross the uncrossable and find you

whispering secrets of the passage

On the current of some distant sunrise

we will drink our fill of starlight

gaze out across ancient gardens

and plan together a new journey

beyond even the realm of strange gods

to find what kingdoms they left abandoned

and cast our shadows on a field of vacant worlds

Have you ever had a recurring dream? What would happen in it? Did it ever stop?

  1. When I was young I always dreamed of my mom falling down a manhole and I couldn’t find a rope long enough to save her. It was recurring for quite a few years and then it just stopped.

  2. I am a dreamer and can remember nearly every dream I have ever had, even as a young child. I have had reoccurring dreams over the years. One dream I had when I was 18 or 19, was always of a bear that would attack and kill me, I would wake up as I died. I began to fight back in my dream. Each night I would fight a little better but would always die. Until one night, I defeated the bear. I never dreamed it again.
