bound in a dreamy web

of feelings coursing wildly through

the narrowing pathways of a distant past

and as yesterday fades to greying old hues

shedding memories one by sad one

truth reveals itself at last


dark and foreboding and silently still


devouring the lies by sheer force of will

the truth with intense emotion

slips out finally from behind the captivity

of the dreary suffocating mask

and the truth then at last feels

released to grasp onto a new hope and

in freedom’s glow truly bask
