ON THE WAY TO MORPH (photomorph) & THE LYING DREAM (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


why am I telling this woman
I'm becoming surprisingly
comfortable with
to trust the stories
her memories tell her?

it's all a big game and I know it!
(take a memory out of the closet
and you can be sure it's not
the one you originally hung there,
just taking it down has messed
with it in some way)

but, damn it, I'm so tired of paying
the price of loneliness for being
a truthsayer (or biting my poor
tongue to keep from speaking)

why can't I, for once, tell a few
sweet little lies that comfort
someone and, more to the point
of this lying dream, myself

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,
