lost and found

a dream creeps sultry while I sleep
   whispering      a balmy breath
hints seductions

unintelligible invitations to

a lazy labyrinth where the lost
prowl    reach awkwardly 
for themselves

there in its midst
we are born

only to return again and again

I had escaped that muted maze
where amplified admonitions
suffocated me    but    still

the glorified guilt of my own inert
inventions  haunts
until I reluctantly return

naked as I was at first

to find the peace
which was always there

sometimes one must strip the bad of life ( often through poetry for me) to find that inner peace and beauty that dwells within! Love this one from you Craig! Nicely penned :) hugs
