Bound by a dream by Dawn Watts

Bound by a dream


In the dream form,

her gender retreats

in the vast emptiness,

encompassing black.


The void, the last voyage

that requires a witness,

deepens, but she remembers-


a future of the past,

the liquid lust of the want &

the prey or prayer of love.


All that is left contains

a spirit of air;

a dance of particles

memory has swallowed.


She wants to know

greater still than the being

overshadowed in desire


Comes to this end.

The reigns tethered

by an invisible master,


a version of herself undone to nothing.

Stained upon her unseen spirit,

the truth revealed as a blinding flood

Beyond climactic highs.


She remembers why-

seeking to intrude within

a curious endeavor.
