    Dream brought
    on sleepy wind
    restless turnings
    witnessed
    the Death
    of a Gypsy...

    Lost amidst
    concrete pillars
    nature's solace
    unreachable
    caught without
    the Knife
    no arsenal to boost
    the warfare
    only bare soul
    wounded wandering
    searching for fires
    against cold steel
    injuries inflicted
    on top of old ones
    singing swords
    lullaby screaming bulletts
    ancient paths found
    lost memories
    escape contorted to
    elusive wisps
    of nostalgic scents
    bringing on
    a face to face
    toe to toe
    encounter
    with

    the enemy (Inner-Me)

    fatal demons
    gathered seething
    destruction simmered slow
    over sounds of

    my
    OWN

    footsteps.....

    I
    Died
    and
    wept...

    and
    awoke

    blessed...

    a
    different

    hue-(man)


    BEING.



    On A Continuous Journey

    N2....

    .....as i walk
    eternal
    my
    soul steps
    on pathways
    sometimes
    hidden
    i
    perceive
    company
    there
    entertwined
    within
    the
    fabric
    of
    fateful
    encounters
    N2
    revealing
    events
    so
    in
    Night
    or
    Day...
    during
    rise
    or
    slip
    know this...
    there
    is
    always
    room
    for
    the
    DAWN

    also know
    as

    "awesome gift."


    for U and your "continuous":heart:
