Dreams of Sanity

Words escape me

Diction tongue-twisted in the taffy

Of malleable cranial wrinkles

Curled and tied in the colors 

Of delusion and surreal illusions

Of insanity. 

Trees melt into frosted handkerchiefs

Of neon beads, flowing in the ocean of

Diamond rain.

Ghost roses giggle and sigh

Like silk veils of transparent butterflies. 

I’ve lost my shoe, and the cold sparkles

Of nighttime dew on the grass 

Make my feet feel like powdered

Christmas donuts.  

I build a fire from the crystal bones

Of past fears, 

warming the chill of my solitude.

When the fogged fuzz evaporates

And dams halt the dry and silent tears.

When lost days are returned unharmed

And clarity details its inner shame. 

This is when I will wake. 

Not staring down sleeps carnal writhings

As bodies swam looking for sparks

Nor dulling synapses repeatedly 

As stimulation bores to the bone. 

This is when I will come alive

I want dancing shoes 

The controlled embrace that knows desire

I want standing ovations 

The pleasure of an adulated audience

This all exists somewhere in the gap 

Between how I feel

and I how I think I feel.
