Past the Limit of Fear

It’s the dream that keeps recurring with unexpected regularity,
a dream that draws the very same picture over and over again,
and each time it leaves me frightened as the end is always the same,
while the dread lingers in my soul for too long a time thereafter.

And the dream appears again, with the outcome still the same,
yet this time I let the scene play on and the dread has somehow gone.
In it’s place a strange sensation, is this freedom so unknown?
Seems the moments past the end, doesn't mean the end at all,
as there is still more out there, past the limit of our fear.


  1. Glad I don't dream . . . . but day dream . . . . and try to make those dreams come true. . . .. :)

  2. So beautifully written. I love the contrast between the two stanzas...

  3. i have a recurring dream...a rather scary one...i relive it everynight as i first drift off to sleep...once i am passed it i am fine, but...sheesh...relief please...smiles.

  4. Awesome perspective photography in BW and sublime words flowing on the page ~ thanks, xoxo

  5. Do I detect a definite rise in your resolve to push past the pain of the past?

  6. I don't like the vivid dreams that I have. Most are filled with abandonment and people who are lost to me, but I keep looking for them. Obviously, I still have the old abandonment stuff going on in my psyche.
