Buried Deep Within

Buried deep within

The voice of a shoe walking along a dark hall

Candlelight upon my eye, hands flat against the table top

The frightened dove landing on a knee

Outside in the courtyard of a different world

Memories that only I can know of those prisoners from long ago

They are secrets of my heart

Chained like animals to indecision and fear

I know them only too well, by name I call them, their touch, their kiss of bloody lips

Yet, at night they turn to shadows and become strangers on some rainy street as I dream upon the oceanic stream

Tossed here and there, waiting for the rocks to awaken my day

Rising up to talk and walk among those who smile and wave me on

Passing like the dumb beast that I am, staggering toward the beginning of yet another dream

Down

Down

Buried deep within
