An Ephemeral Dream

by David Marshall   Sep 19, 2010


Try to breathe; try not to leave,
try to save this aquatic dream.
Don't let it drown; guide its way,
reach the surface; to the majestic gleam.

disperse the mist; don't let it fray,
hold it tight from this endless cascade.
Its love is radiant; from night to day,
its longed for you since the moment it was made.

it mourns for a chance; as it slowly decays;
it screams your name while in evanescent waves.

it cracks in your presence; its an ethereal dream;
will you mend to its pain; will you answer its scream.

in my mind i hear an echoic laughter,
as if it was a clue; some sort of certitude.
i hope I'm wrong; prove me hereafter,
I'm a slave to my love; some sort of servitude.

I hear a cry so poetic,
like a melody of elegy.
its so pure; no its pathetic.
its the end; yes the end of me.

baby come hold me now; lets end this dream.
lets end the wounds; lets begin to heal.
the future is dead; or so it seems,
baby wake me up, lets make this real.
