vivid

so vivid

this [dream]


step


black cardigan slides past [__] shoulders

down [__] arms

leave it crumpled on the floor


step


walk past the slippers by the door

press into a crystal fog

enrapturing [__] face


step


breathing in shards of blistering cold

the broken night

shreds [__] airways


step


azure deeper

than this dream leading [__]

down this stone walkway


step


gravel bites into [__] soles

dig [__] heels in

leap into a fading patch of snow


step


ground so frozen

no dying green life could

cling to [__] feet as [__] go


step


moon commandeering sky

soak up it’s rays

supplement the sun’s heat


fall


blouse hits the ground

out of [__] jeans

lingerie lost in the meadow


step


silence clear, decisive

cutting through all thought

grass stains never come out


step


stalks brush against exposed thighs

lost in a sea of weeds

swaying in the undertow


step


steel blue streaks

don’t reach the ground

below my knees is a void


stop

crush the straw underneath [__] weight

skin turning paler by the second

tucked away in a dying field

breathe

a gasp shattering the silence

i don’t know why i’m here

just a little bit more

silence

so vivid

this [dream]

[i] tell [myself]
