Dreamy Apparition

Written by: Matthew Anish

After the screen is turned off 
    After the day has been put to rest 
An apparition appears
    She is cloaked
in black 
    Her eyes glow like cat eyes 
in the dark 
    One can feel her 
  moving in what is known 
as a dream 
    Silently she speaks volumes 
No one know why 
  she has come 
Yet we can learn from her 
    In the depths of night 
Before we enter the realm 
   of Morpheus 
She lets us know she is here 
"It is not dying"
Rather it is submitting 
  to an inscrutable will 
that guides us through 
 the shadows
  leaving us breathless on a distant shore
