Touch and Go

March 31, 2021


Brilliant light reaches down, a hand from above
Touching life, illuminating lies, searing my retinas
Like something holy that defies tangibility
Reflecting upon the water as a striving, sorrowful soul

A dream of death, the final moments of a friend
Pushing the darkness into the despairing depths of my heart
Hidden from the luminous brightness by walls of stygian gloom
The hallowed secret a friendship locked away forever

Night comes, a god of old billowing from the bowels of the earth
Snuffing the light from our minds like hope crushed under fingers of death
Something we once had, now transcendent in our memory
Elusive laughter and light dancing across the pages of our life

Tears mingle with the dew of dawn
A fleeting fog vanished by the sun
Emotion cloys our senses
A miasma of feelings echoing into eventide

The body a prison cell containing only a soul
A vessel for the works of a heavenly deity
A vicious fight for life, taking no prisoners
Touch and go
Pirates, books by Brandon Sanderson, and a dead friend. That's what I dreamed about last night. Definitely bittersweet, and not very sensical (for example, the pirates only stole books written by Brandon Sanderson... not sure where that came from but okay). The other part of my dream was an alternate reality where my friend was able to live out the last moments of her life again, with the knowledge she was going to die. That's what sparked this poem...
