It was a strange

waking -

perhaps the wraith of a memory of a dream

lay with me,

offering some

hazed contentment


a waking


the pillow

beside me

Short and Nameless

All they want is me

In this late, slow morning

Dim and cool and simple

The lights off and show running

It's enough, always enough

And that should keep me good

So all I need is to ignore those things

Attacking outside my door

Random Hero

The only person who can save me

Mentalities can't fly

Yours wont admit defeat

Not that I ever wanted you to lose

But, my grasp is still so weak

cross the path

lead gently to

a flowing river

where dreams

pop to the surface

in silver bubbles

before being lost

In the flowing eddies


the trees

gather close
