This Dream

That was me

stumbling blind in darkness like no other darkness

the kind that would have reminded me of death

if I could remember it

This, the only way I know

to commune with something other than myself

stream of consciousness dammed up and overrun

falling as rain in reverse to drown the sky

above me lying in a circle drawn in sand

stitched once more into this dream of skin and bone

alive again, for a little while

Are there any books that you go back to over and over? Any that never get old for you?

  1. I try to re-read The Lord of the Rings every year starting around this time (and sometimes I start with The Hobbit). It’s been a few years since I’ve done it so I’m really looking forward to it this time around.
