nightmare in a net

dream

my darling,
do not close your eyes just yet
yesterday’s dreams
lie, rich with tears
pictures on a fleshy reel
anxious
to blind you
and rip your wounds again
no, do not close them
not yet,
only keep your gaze
before you
let your lantern
burn
with the fuel
of moonlight and whisky,
of pictures
and postcards
of butterflies
and blurred goodbyes
and in your path
eternity
lies free
of torment

    ‘only keep your gaze

    of moonlight and whisky,’

    I don’t know how many nights this exemplified me in my younger days
