Like a Dream

Once again,
There is a rainbow at the farther end.
Once more,
The waves are lapping gently by the shore...
I hear
The music they have played before, but clear
Of me –
Never this way, for eternity!
I like
The colors spread across the sky;
Angel wings –
Feathered clouds draped in gentle silken strings –
Tempt me
Beyond the comfort of melancholy.

And, then, I hear the scream.
Daylight rakes.
