Shadows and images in my mind recede sometime before the dawn. Sometime before the first flicker of the morning light I regain the consciousness of life that was suspended while I slept and lived among the shadows of my mind.

SOMETIME BEFORE THE DAWN

By Al Garcia

Shadows and images in my mind recede sometime before the dawn.  Sometime before the first flicker of the morning light I regain the consciousness of life that was suspended while I slept and lived among the shadows of my mind. 

Two worlds confined within the realm of my body and my soul.  Defined by the light and by the darkness that rule each unique dominion of my being.  Life defined by the Jeckle and Hyde syndrome that devours and assaults the mind and consumes reality and delusion.  Wakefulness the redeemer of the hallucinations that haunt and rob the restless mind.  And sometime before the dawn the welcomed respite from the incessant flight of fleeing thoughts and images that seek release before they fade and are betrayed as phantoms and illusions.

And sometime before the dawn I awake and feel alive again, only to question whether I am a figment of an illusion that never wants to end.
