Leaves Rising Upward“Thomas…Thomas!”Leaves Rising Upward by CircleDreams
He heard the voice. The leaves were whirling.
He was sitting in a stack of dead, brightly colored leaves that had fallen to the ground.
He couldn’t see. The air was filled with bits of foliage. He was is the eye of a maelstrom. Leaves in his eyes, in his mouth, choking.
He couldn’t stand up.
He was being shaken.
“THOMAS! Wake up!”
The boy drew in a deep, shaky breath and opened his eyes to his mother’s worried face.
“Thomas, my beloved boy…you need to sit up.” Her face was bright with relief.
He did, slowly, with her help.
“Mother…” His voice was soft, raspy.
She sat on the bed and put her arms around him.
“You were screaming, Love, in your sleep.”
He blinked. Tiny leaves, embellished in bright hues, flared behind his eyelids.
“I…was outside, wasn’t I?”
She blinked. Worry infused her thoughts.
“No, Love…you were only
What would I give you, if I could ...What would I give you, if I could ...What would I give you, if I could ... by CircleDreams
I would give you your heart, I would give you your courage
And I would remind you that you are nothing less than
The living expression of the love of thousands of your
Ancestors who dreamed of you (I swear they did)
And smiled in their sleep
And I would remind you that you are beautiful
Stunning even, just for being the totality that is
You ...and that is all you ever will have to be, because
There never was a judgment ...and never will be
There is only love and that's all, everything
I would see you understand that sorrows are fleeting
If you are willing to let them fade, and burn out, without guilt
Like the stub of a candle, done and gone, and you
Are always allowed to be happy again, every time
I would tell you your happiness is a sacred thing
I would give you all this, if I thought you would hear

Thought you would believe me and t

that's how my dream rejuvenates
in the light that becomes cage
Sweet as a murmur, a fable

That's what's left of her,
for you to keep...
but an ancient flavour,
A scrap of you
the way you were - ayer
the way you could have been...
There was the Night - the Night!
that other you moving forward
fights her way in the dark...
got a dream in her hand
in her eyes, the Night
so deep and so severe
like a shattered destiny,
turns into a road
There was the Night...the Night...
Clinging to my dream,
clear flooded eyes
i've been there as well,
And i made no sense
and got no regret
I don't feel my hands - my own hands!
Off they've gone
on a quest for something
that cannot be watched
- and none will care to watch -
as long as it is
