Dream of a Journey
Last night, i travelled round the
wall of rio de janeiro.
with my eyes closed beneath the. cloak of white apparel,
Wandering across my mind on the
soft chambers of my bed.
The art painted on the pages of
Woke up to reality watching
your dream run faster than your
Walking across the land for fortune
in dreg of sweat across the face,
the skin groan for breed to stand
amidst the breed for survival.
The universe move in wind and storm,
the climate change across
The sun change its cloak with dawn,
the moon exchange its identity of the dark for intensity that rage
beneath the cloud.
The drowning day on the scarlet of
The night set it edge around the sky,
to replace the brightness of the clouds, casting shades to the path of man across
We work all day under the veil of the
The light are far apart from our eyes,

visit you never announced.
You stretch across the clouds
Moving across the sphere,
switching reality to dreams.
The swipe will restore the sun,
eyes would be bright again.
Our dream would not sway in the
veil of shades.
Thy reality would be castaway from
the nightmares of the day.
