Treasure Island

Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Dream Catcher


Dream catcher;
Burning them in the dark
Where the lovesick lie
What if we don't?
The lonely fault was mine
Buried under a meaningless guise

Dream catcher;
Can you catch before the fall?
And if you don't?
Would our secrets remain secrets?
Are you the kind to fall?
Or the ones to jump off?

Dream catcher;
Writhing in temporary bliss
And we revel in the ephemera
I can't keep seeing the memories
The candles float upon the water
But the light hardly shines

Dream catcher;
I can't see you
Yet the melodies reach me
I'm blinded by the shroud
I can feel your hand
But where's the warmth?

Dream catcher;
And you who slip through
A quiet dream
Hardly remembered
And yet she went quietly
But I still see all of our ghosts

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
