In A Still Sleeping Place Inside My Head

The for the fourth day of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2020 is:

“…to write a poem based on an image from a dream”.   

… and so I did….

In A Still Sleeping Place Inside My Head
by Michael Doyle

The feeling comes so vivid and so very hard
As if life had dealt its wild card
Ripping the world a new wormhole
Connected as we are soul to soul

Times like these don't really hunt
In a world of always getting what you want
Jacked into a deeper sense of relevancy
There at the center point of intimacy

I knew a mermaid once in her dream
The mind's dominion belonging to a god supreme
Where only those who are bold enough
Can ever truly reach out to live enough

Unmasking, as it were, those things thought evil
Ratcheting up experience to a whole new level
Waltzing into a combined synchronization
As we float above and below in integration

With everything that is real and unreal
Just beneath the swirl of waxen seal
Going with that feeling spun into reeling
Until its urgency stands revealing

What might we all someday become
If we can learn to dream beyond the numb
Married to one another, merging beyond fear
Where happiness and sadness join in one tear

At the count of one, it has all begun
As we drift with purpose into being undone
This is what happens as the angels sing
Dissonant choruses of what fear brings

The lame shall learn to walk once again
Into the beauty that is both foe and friend
Running there through the slumbered twilight
Energy flowing until dark becomes light

Dancing as we dance in circumstance
For the dreamers who dream their own chance
Black and white covered in a drop of red
In that place where hope overcomes dread
