My Once, Innocent Dreams

My Once, Innocent Dreams

“Great men hallow a whole people, and lift up all who live in their time.” – Sydney Smith

My Once, Innocent Dreams

fetal position
feeds on me.
Arms swallow me whole,
digesting my insides on outsides.

mouth opens,
drooling on me.
I wipe the shame
that came from my insides.

is salty.
It is mine.
I only share when
it’s my idea to share.

fall asleep.
Mind wanders on.
Head struck by lightning,
electrifying my once, innocent dreams.

lift me.
Raising my spirits.
Giving me the hope
that I so desperately need.

more dreams.
No more release.
Just a moment to
appreciate the things you have.
