Daily missive for Wednesday the 6th of April.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 6th of April.

We walk in dreams
As clear to me now
As they were in
Childhood capers.
Complete with a wish
To be fulfilled,
The fear of loss
So imbued with
A dread so near
But never close
To understanding
How a dream of
Burnished souls,
Emboldened knights
And silver plated
Was brought down
To its knees,
Where it was found
After many nights past,
Rusting in a swamp
Of flagging spirits,
Stripped and bared
Of all their
Power to perform
When banished
To the bleakest
Darkest room,
At the end
Of the topmost
Which in a steep
Into a never ending
With you so high
Above my calling
That only once I chanced
Upon your midnight smile,
Refracted in the oil
Of an old lantern,
Still caught in the
Bloodshot eye
Of a hurricane
And found myself
To be forevermore,
Just one
Small step behind you.
