Way Back…

The dreams wane away ~
I cannot trace them back
To the blackness they lived in;

If I could, I would have known
The darkness behind my closed eyes
And the pure depth of my sleep…

If I could, I would have seen
The strange immaterials
That build me from inside…

If I could, I would have found
The little fears that aggregate
Around my heart, feigning courage…

If I could, I would have learnt
The sounds that form visions
That you can never erase…

If I could, I would have discovered
Where I used to be, and where I’m now
In this vast, narrow-minded world…

If I could, I would’ve groped my way back
To light, just to realize that, unlike before,
There’s much more to appreciate here…
