The Horseman's Dream

I n   t h i s   d r e a m

I’m veiled and pale
       gaunt and gray

                 morphed
              into a mist

                of filtered
        darkened rays
        of fading day


                    I ’ m   t e r r i f i e d


                                rigid hands

                         choke the reins
                      wrapped around
                      my wrists

 

    I ’ m   a w a r e

    I’m not
    the only rider
                     here


                      I could not breathe
                            could not stand
                             could not bend

                    could not even send
                           nor comprehend

                                      t h e    S.O.S

                  I could not help myself


        in this dream

                    I ’ m   d e a t h


                             I sat

    strong and proud
    upon my steed


    but

    could not feel
    could not smell

          could not tell
        dew from rain
         the scars
          the pain


                  my naked feet
                  burn

                                      y e t  .  !

                  never
                  touched the ground


      I flew
      without wings

                  I fell from grace

         I saw the face
                      of God


I fell

from the sky
like an eagle

              or dragon
in sweet embrace

 

                    r e c o g n i s i n g  .  .

                    the ground
                    moments before

                            s a l v a t i o n


 

       long shadows

        ssscccrrreeeaaammm  .  .

                ~  S e e   M e  ~

 


                              I am  the  riders
                                    of the dream


                              in this dream

                            all the horsemen

 

                               W e r e   M e . !
