Bleh with Barry

Random with a cynical twist of lime.

I dreamed of a place

Where no one was alone.

The warm breeze shuffled

The leaves of the trees.

The water of the stream gurgled

In the banks under the log bridge.

Members of a dynasty

Welcomed me there forever…

Or so I thought until

They shewed me away,

Saying that it was not my time…

I awoke and cried.

Nirvana

leave a comment »

For years, I dreamt of a land.

Far away from this one,

Where people live forever

An immortal land beyond the stars.

But a cold chill came to my consciousness

And told me that my ideas were flawed.

No place existed where we can be free

From sorrow and death.

A queen’s ransom is paid to assuage

My supple longing to feel flesh,

To feel the warm sun upon my hair,

To be wrapped in the wind.

Piteous blackness waits for me

Writhing against my temporal existence

Pulling me into the nothingness

That waits for me beyond the pale
