Only In A Dream

by Mel V.

Only in a dream, I would run

From the dark tendrils of the sun

Seeking to snatch me from safety

Making me wretch, my thoughts crazy

My wits are unwound, I'm undone.

Useless efforts spent to outrun

The trepidity has begun

Threatening then to consume me.

Only in a dream.

Slowly disintegrating, one

By one, in the heat of the sun

Dragging me out to the black sea

Where is the valor? There is none-

Only in a dream.
