A Dream Fell

Written by: Michael J. Falotico

A frozen memory set in time..
Melts slowly from my aging mind..
Like wax dripping in my hand..
A burning scar begins to expand..
Drifting in and out of what is real..
A fading smile I can barely feel..
Where dreams begin and where they end..
I can taste the air as the clouds descend..
The walls move closer as time is erased..
While sleep was spared and a nightmare faced..
