Daily missive for Wednesday the 15th of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 15th of January.

There are few dreams
Worthy of remembrance
Nothing comes to mind
Unless it screams
The memories we have
Are soon forgotten
In the waking
Unlike when we were children
Spiders on the walls
Monsters in your head
Crabs beneath the bed
Waiting to nip your toes
When you step down
Onto the linoleum
Cold as ice
Even in summer,
When Jack Frost created
Patterns on the inside
Of the window
Where did all the time go
Busy chasing rainbows
Without end
When the treasure
Was always within reach
If we looked closely
Though darkly
Grows the journey
Into winter
Without the warmth
Of accumulated memory
It will be a few degrees colder
Inside your head
As you grow older
Alone, beneath the tousled sheets
On your brass bed
Until one day
When you just might
Wake up…
