In Your Dreams


Safe from that


of falling

in dreams.


to nothing,

but silence

and an empty place.

Where are you

now that your eyes

are open?

Is it still  the same place

where you slept?

The last time I saw you

you were sleeping,

tears streaming down your face.

Stretch your body.

Take in your surroundings.

Tell me,

is there anything here

you recognize?

Do you know

how long you were asleep?

Look out on this sunrise

and tell me

where you are now,

after the journey

in your dreams.
