Omen or Dream?
Was it vision, omen or a dream?
I too got my warning ...
Two diverse coloured shoes
Dusk, rain and red clay ...
Stained in mud, determined
I forged along without my partner
Who earlier diverted sticking his 15" dagger in the sand, and
Silently watched me go alone.
Then I was stuck in a situation
That fiercely pointed to an end.
Saturated earth, dangerously sunken
I climbed over to cross the bridge. but inches below
The chasm ... any moment,
with my weight was going down ...
I tried to climb out again
After assessing my eminent situation.
Saturated mud, darkness, close to my destination.
No one would ever find me buried in this massive breakaway ...!
Struggling still to go over.
I could not get a single grip.
My heart stormed in flight of fright
Scenes of my past to present
Flashed before me ...
The amber signs cautioned
divert! divert! divert!
But my emotions clung to a heart that was not permitted the freedom to humanely beat!
As I struggled; those brown eyes seared my soul
Like hungry flames
Fighting its own anguish, an undying love
Ripped by massive physical and emotional pain
Surreal ... in mud all over
My white shoe and brown sandal
did not matter anymore
My lighter side escaped from this awful scene!
With my heart still pounding ...
I wrote down this vision, omen or dream
