Before I wake

I fly,
Pushing past the limits of this life
Eyes closed to dangerous signals and possibility of defeat
Head cocked to the side, eyes closed to everything
Except this
Beat
Mind blowing, all around
Me
I’m set free

I float,
Brushing by the turbulence of this time
Lips aflame with feelings and fanciful things
Forcing my fervor onto the faint of heart
Challenging
Winning the race
To be
Me
I’m set free

I fall,
wings failing me–too flimsy to go where
I want to be
Want to live
Instead I
Bank, I
Dive, I
Fold,
Scattering my dreams into heartless realities
Sprinkling my heart like candy on ice cream
A million unique pieces
Bringing life even as
I die
Challenging
Winning the race
Me, all around
Mind blowing, except
This beat
I’m set free
