I lay naked
had cast my clothes of silk
like an old worn out skin
and slept under a sky that waited
for a new dawn
I struggled in my nightmare
to break away from the web
spun by a black spider all around me
Far away birds circled above
near a lightening horizon
and I waited
in my dream, for the fluttering wings,
waited for a shower of sundrops
to bathe and purify me,
my soul in my tainted body.
