Sweet Dreams

Sweet dreams… flashes of Kodak moments…desire framed in translucent bubbles gently tickle my nose…induced

Sweet dreams… pastel colored memories… cast in hues of unfathomed bliss caress softly, behind closed eyes…reposed

Sweet dreams…subconscious whims …arouse playful visions of fantasy gleaned from countless pleasures, waft rhythmically above slumbered head… seduced

Sweet dreams… radiant moon beams sparkle... bliss glows and sprinkles jubilantly dance, around the waxing moon… oblivious

Sweet…dreams…cool rain drops... transform reverie into murky pieces of a nameless dream, "Secrets" cloak quickly shrouds the waning moon …anxious
Sweet…dreams…surreptitious by nature… bleak darkness overwhelms starlit memories once bright, no peace survives this plight tonight…confusion.

Sweet…dreams… lulled by rustling whispers…soft sing-song  rock-a-bye tunes sway halting thoughts of stark reality; "Saving Grace", new best friends, "Emotionless" and "Solace" break the fall as fantasy tumbles at an uncontrollable pace …epiphany

Sweet…dreams...host of the “masquerade ball”…guests' "Masked Secret" escorted by "Blind Ignorance", flaunt costumes dressed as "Unbeknown-st" and "Eyes Wide Shut", strut haughtily with "Unrevealed"… rivalry

Sweet…dreams…heart fiercely rocked… gripped on a roller coaster ride to watch Gibraltar crumble, thrust into the tight embrace of faith to face the folly and be wise…boldly

Sweet…dreams…awakened to limitless realities…up a zigzag maze around choice ruled
actions, anticipating unpredictable fate; dreams come with wisdom by the wings of a dove, bringing peace as the treasure, and a promise of joy for good measure…  empowered 

Sweet dreams!
