In my dreams I time travel
Into the dark reaches of every mistake, I’ve made.
Jumbled characters perform outrages stunts.
I lie in bed suspended on clouds of worry.
I apologize for my younger selves,
Misinformed, wild-eyed with hope.
I trace the paths that led me awry.
The missteps of understanding.
Misunderstanding my steps.
Until I fly in and out of years past.
My wings bring lightness to my follies.
I see the sparkle of giving,
The desire to please,
The nurturing,
The abstinence of greed.
A broken heart forever open,
Stretched and stretched.
My eyelashes blink rainbow tears
As the present nears
The past recedes.
Dreams settle.
I’m free just to be me.
