I had a dream where nothing 
was what it seemed.
It was dark and then too bright 
and all my words left my mind.
I saw a bright beam where 
everything was what I’d 
The darkness fell over the 
shadows and swallowed 
everything that was kind.
The light fled and tomorrow 
was a treasure I just knew I 
had to find.

Yesterday was lost and 
everyone stood with a great 
amount in cost.
It was sad and it was glad, but 
everyone threw it up for a toss.
Passing through time with 
glimmering bright lights,
Where were the dark lonely 

Flash-backs timing the tracks 
as most folks fell through tiny 
little cracks,
Each one flashed back on top 
of crumpling down broken old 
Then it was cold and then it got 
Today was here and being 
blotted out like a tiny black 
Flash-backs and flash-backs 
sending millions tracks of light 
to never forget me not.

    That's my dream every night, Ann. Kidding, but I really enjoy this a lot and it is well written. Took me on a trip. Thanks for sharing. And thanks for the kind comments you've left for me. I'm new here and am enjoying the response. I don't know the proper etiquette yet, though and I find this site very difficult to use. I'm told something of mine is featured. Featured in what? Where? I don't get it. And I don't see how I can send direct emails to people. Can you help? Tony
