Inner Lost Child - Constanza Premiere Contest Winner

We wander all, in feral dreams of jagged thoughts and cryptic yearns; a labyrinth of mirrored turns. Along a ridge of moon stitched seams, lie melancholic tapestries, unfolded in an abstract frieze. Subconscious angst weaves heart loomed themes from pain sewn deep, through puerile eyes, till daybreak’s alabaster guise. As savage beasts from darkened streams, complicit servants of the id, form insights purged at slumber’s bid. Claw toward light as urging deems; these taloned gasps of hidden truth, burst from the depths of shuttered youth. We wander all, in feral dreams along a ridge of moon stitched seams. Subconscious angst weaves heart loomed themes, as savage beasts from darkened streams, claw toward light as urging deems. 19 Nov 2019
