    The rain pours down,
    as I sift through the leaves
    Earth running through my fingers,
    as I crawl to the Reeds.
    Through the tunnel of grass,
    the clouds are moving with speed
    I look up to see the faces of the prophets

    My mind has escaped,
    no longer bound by the flesh
    I am searching for happiness,
    and how to leave this regret
    A riderless horse,
    Leads to the Angel of Death
    There's no need to be nervous, i'm just dreaming

    Through the looking glass,
    I retreat down the hole
    The caterpillar is perched,
    as he's taking a toke
    He gestures to me,
    But I can't see through the smoke
    I extend my hand, but now he's hidden

    As my journey continues,
    I see the ghost of the father
    I haven't known him for years,
    reaching out for his shoulder
    He turns to speak,
    "take good care of your brother"
    "He has lost his way,
    Now go find him"

    Lost as where to start,
    He always thought me precocious
    Ruled by jealousy and greed,
    his smile makes me nauseous
    He crossed the blade,
    with no attempt to be cautious
    He loves himself with reckless abandon

    A sounding alarm,
    I arose with a force
    No longer chasing rainbows,
    This end I did not endorse
    Never will I catch,
    the riderless horse
    But of course, I wish I was still dreaming

    Dear Suspence, thanks for the ride ... spiritual, yes? ... and creative ............ Luna



    Thanks lunamarie, its been so long since I read this one myself haha, thanks so much for the comments, and your time. Its funny how you dont think about something for so long, and then you read it, and it takes you right back to the place you were when you wrote it. Funny how that works. ~Spence



    you're welcome ... yes, I know whatcha mean ... smile ...

    'He loves himself with reckless abandon' Your mastery of poetic description leaves me with goosebumps! Another well deserved 10!

    very imaginative how your dreams and that dreadful moment of waking up to an alarm clock, wishing you could still be asleep. I think we have all been there.

    Wow, man. A journey down the rabbit hole but instead of escapist fantasy you get visions that hit too close to home; that's not including those that have scored direct hits. Still you come out the other side stronger than before. I love the surrealism and the message.

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
