There is a
Dark Spot in
There you are
In lava’s glow against a moonless midnight.
Temptation beyond denial,
Smiling the distant smile of desire,
Somewhere beyond all hope.
Embedded in the dreams of faceless names
Across the web of souls.
It is strange to watch myself
Wander within the mist,
Always a reach away.
Another step to take.
Gliding above the ground
Unable to walk or run,
Just drifting towards outstretched arms
That fill an empty place.
Each dream brings no new discovery
Nor unveiling of unseen things.
No tale of distant lovers
Finding one another across the transversal of loneliness.
No thank yous said, nor good-byes.
There is no land of promise
Nor promised lands here.
Just borrowed glimpses of perfection
Returned to their rightful owner
At the end of each dream.
