Passages, Puppets, Windows and Shadows.

4 Jan

Words come out at night, when i’m about to close my eyes, when i loosen up the guard and let go. They run about freely, whisper in my head. They morph into sinuous creatures and puppeteer my thoughts.


Tired eyes for a Sleepless Mind,
i wish that my Heart was more, of the Fearless kind.
I sleep in Daylight,
’cause the white Ghosts can’t be seen,
I stare at the Moon, right,
until the sky turns grey, before the sun kicks in.
Without the Sun i can’t stretch my lips,
the cold numbs my Hands and i lose my grip.
Frozen fingers await those who Hold onto things too long,
so i’m letting him go, but don’t think i’m strong.

    If those puppets are loose in my dreams this evening, I’ll remember where to return them.

    Thank you for the delightful imagery.

      .. and thank you for this delightful comment!
      had a look at your blog, liked the idea that one could pick a packet of tofu, “out of nostalgia”. Maybe i should be remembered through the act of picking up a packet of tofu in a supermarket one day too.. liked the image your sentence triggered in my mind.
