Sleepwalk

Updated on September 7, 2015
Source

We drift

across Time’s plane –

finite and etched in space;

a rift,

coordinate

to map the breadth of days

of life mundane.

Absorbed

in paltry noise,

enmeshed within a web –

enthralled

with trinkets small;

a silent empty ebb

of jeweled ploys

We seek

yet find

the soul decayed;

too bleak

and blind

while spirit wanes away;

at surface bask

in glory, pleasure, gain –

a burnished mask,

yet vain.

We coast

while seconds flee

amidst the din and strife;

and bow

to mores, theories, faiths,

delusive hopes,

inertia of days;

to think

that we should grasp

each precious shard that crafts

this whole of Life.

Is Life a Dream?

      Thanks for stopping by @swalia.

      @David Trujillo, sometimes it does seem that way.

      Life is a dream, but not to be considered apart from reality. It is as vital to our progess in real life as life after death.

      Ahhh, that last part is almost poetic :)
