Sleepwalker

Sleep Walking

Sleep Walking (Photo credit: corey.wagehoft)

Sonambulatory surrender
Caught between
Ether and ethereal
Exilir and exile
Wandering blind but seeing
Down shadowed hallways
Shuffling, shuffling

Delirious disorientation
Shot through with
Night and nightmare
Delirium and dream
Every step a pattern
Of preternatural instinct
Shuffling, shuffling

Sleepwalker signalling
Words between
Wondering and wonderment
Desire and design
Thousand step journey
Unconscious and alone
Shuffling, shuffling

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
