dVerse: Name of the Rose is Sylvia


Sylvia Says …

in my dreams
I am quiet
full of secrets

and my eyes
are open
sleep is thin and light.
Dreams, too light of promise.

And don’t tell your secrets
to a dream, she says.
Rearrange them like feathers
like a madness.

Sylvia says
her dreams are starved eyes
that stole
all her secrets.

And Sylvia believes
the world is flat.

  1. There is much that can fall flat… beliefs that are outdated.
    And yet no matter how hard one tries some will stay in the dark.

    It doesn’t matter where words come from – that they allow you life and breath that is important 🙂
