The following piece was presented at Jersey City Writers’ literary event – Formation: A Night of Poetry. Please enjoy.
Break of day
I’m falling into a dream
into the smile of those misty eyes
these fractured pieces I can now redeem.
Waves tossing about but it finally does seem
I can hear your whisper and your lullabies
as I’m falling into a dream.
Our shadows emerge from the blight with a brand new gleam
as the darkness fades away from the skies
these little pieces I can now redeem.
All those moments, an endless stream
a million little pictures beneath the starry skies
I’m awake or am I in a dream?
I collect all the memories, close the broken seam
the gaping void and the cries
for these fractured pieces I can now redeem.
The morning light hits my eyes with its bright gleam
Is it you ? …. and together from the waves we rise
as I wake up to a dream
these fractured pieces I can finally redeem.
