Language Unknown 

Drifting through the waves,

The sky moving above me,

Trees whispering to one another.

I rock gently as I arrive ashore,

Dry mouthed,

Blistered lips,

Cracked skin.

I fade to white,

Soothed by the water.

My ears prick up,

My flesh is covered in clouds,

Floating towards the warmth.

Gravity lays me down.

Heavy pile of rocks,

My body solidifies.

Wetness around my mouth,

My tounge soaks it up.

Language unknown comforts my soul.

Peace descends upon me and again,

I am drifting through the waves.

Are You Near?

You are blurred in my mind.

A fleeting shadow,

With a warming presence.

In my dreams your lips move

But your voice is lost,

Trapped in the far corner

Of a cluttered mind. 

Are you near?

The burden weighs me down. 

Knowing that memories will be replaced,

Shatters my already fragile heart. 

Come back to my dreams,

No need for words.

Just hold me tight

Until another new day begins.
