A Shared Dream


wisdom boy,
where will you be
when the day slips
into the arms of

i'll be
where i always
seem to be;

between my rooftop
and the sky,
the velvet overflow
and wondering
if you are close
to share this
midnight dream
with me.

I’m floating right on the edge,
Yearning for our sweet velvet concoction of reality,
With the vision walls lined with burgundy 
I still hover over the subconscious, 
But not there completely… 
I’m still encased in black with golden specks,
Desperately seeking, reaching,
For this dream to drown me.

pulls me up
into heaven's
indigo ocean,

weightless i glide
swimming in the wake
of diamond tailed fishes
that lead me on,

i will find you
on the edge
of our shared
dream's horizon,

for i can feel you;

your searching hands
pressing against
a translucent pane,
its kaleidoscope refraction
waiting to be punctured
by the meeting
of our outstretched

Dreaming lady,
I see your fingertips reaching for my hands’ end,
So our fantasia can begin.
And once our fingers graze one another’s lightly,
I am no longer bound by the heavy weight of reality.
I’m finally able to escape this layered lucidity,
Free to dream with you completely once more
As my fingers wrap around yours.
Shattering the concealed layer of the conscious living.
Our warmth, being the key to the subliminal, 
The perfect purity, 
Where our lustrous fantasies reside in phantasm.
I no longer tote the line, 
The resistance of my mind,
Destroyed every time you fly with me.
And even though my eyes are lidded,
My soul sings as I reach home and my vision,
Is the clearest it has ever been as our eyes truly open.

This piece is a collaboration between myself and the truly amazing Lady-Yume. I can't quite recall who came to who for the collaboration idea 'cause it seemed the minute we agreed we were gonna do something together we got immediately to work! This was so much fun to do as her poetry is always so chock full of incredible imagery, I was challenged to try and bring something near that standard to the table. 

I feel collaborations always bring out the best in me as far as my different skills and this was no different. The Dreaming Lady, Lady-Yume really inspired me to come up with something as equally as incredible as her stanzas and I hope I did. This was fun and I really think y'all are gonna like this.

And be sure to go show Lady-Yume some love. Llama her, watch her, fave her stuff, and just go do nice things for her 'cause KJ's just awesome and I love her. :heart:

And as she affectionately calls me, the 'wisdom boy' hopes you all enjoy this. :iconbowplz:

Stanzas written in normal type (second and final) by me, the other stanzas (opening and third) written by KJ. :)

This is very interesting.  Incredibly unlike any of your other collaborations.  Lady-Yume certainly brings out a different side of your writing, and I like it!  Nice job to you both. :)
