I SLEPT AND SAW

I was deep in the land of shadows

Halfway between the living and dead

In the awful silence of void

The atmospheres soft

And it's people plastic

Mephistophelean and astute

When a band of ruffians stormed

The inferno beneath

With volcanic tremor

Sweeping down like a tidal wave

Of so terrific Tsunamic magnitude

Spurning all restraint

Slowed down my pace

By reciprocal math of wizardly

Substituting the direct proportion for inverse

I dragged and they almost flew

Corpsic form and tattered cloth

Is all I see and

Gaping mouth oozing blood

Grotesque creatures tinting hell

After me and almost done

I shout out loud voiceless

I reach for the nothingness

And there's no thing

I stretch still to scale it down

Wishing I had wings

And take flight

Or superhuman like Superman

Hopping I possessed metaphysical force

Like the Matrix upgrade version

To disembody and dematerialize

And so vanish into stillness

To hang in space out of sight

By the trickery of magic

To cast spell like lady of the Voodoo

And freeze plant herbage and the human

Instantly and give a diabolic glean

Make a catwalk of villain trump

To the disgust of victim

And ultimate flown of the gods

That hardly smile anyway

But I am human and my powers feeble

My infinity lies bound within

Time and daylight

The parameters of finite

In a rat race so unfair

Distances too close and defeat too plain

I die out and awoke within

To brace another day with headache

Devil, I escaped Gehenna

That gives me surety I will outpace you

For what I saw when I slept

Hail Tartarus I am Morpheus
