The next chapter

Now that you have touched me
with your magic Midas words
elevated my feet high
above the safety of sacred ground
now that you have dipped me
into a raging river of adoration
raised me beyond feathery clouds
with vivid images
introduced me to
the gift of florid
fantasies
daydreams
fairytales
and magical stories
without endings
what am I to do
where am I to go
from here in my
world of cold bleak
stark reality?

How will I write the next
inspired chapter
without your ink flowing
drenching my parchment
without the light
from your eyes
guiding, illuminating
my pure virgin pages
without your tender touch
writing love letters on my skin
for such unscripted
emptiness is sure to
leave my mind
barren
my heart
bruised
my soul
burnt
my dreams
buried

Please, will you tell me
what the title
of our next chapter will be?

Artist's Description

What do we do when we cannot change things to be the way we dream them to be?
How do we find a way forward when there is no path to walk, no script to follow and the dreams live, nowhere but in our minds…
