Capturing Dreams

As sleep falls away

Images fade

And memory plays tricks

With the visions

That danced before us

A moment of wisdom

Feels just out of reach

Lost in the confusion

Between two worlds

We weave webs

To catch the nightmares

To hold them apart

From our vulnerability

As our defenses vanish

But we lose

The deeper meaning

Behind the delights and terrors

That chase our rest ~ Caroline A. Slee
