Never sleep

Just dream.

A poisonous thing.
Some words.
And a promise

Mirrored on the glass
forever
Frozen expressions
molded. As a mask

A mask that smiles
Another to frown.
Crinkled at the brow

The water in the room
overflowing
Flooding. Empty spaces
between the glass

Beneath or behind
Drowns the sinking ship
in a wake of brilliant lights
Stirred up by a paddle

Fleeing faster.
The alchemist turns the air
to mud
Where no one can follow.

Scorched bridges behind
No where to hide
from piercing glances
That never came.

Blank. Divided. Gasping
gulping in the mud
tastes of lavender
reminded

The mirror wasn't always empty
Open eyes walking
shifting
Bumping into things

In circles.
Endless
circles. Repeated words

Never sleep

Just a dream
