in reverse

pondering the question of

“how did i get here” is different          

 than living inside the question             while dreaming in reverse..

here, there, now or then                         ‘dreaming in the moment’

 follows the  wisdom of the be here now path…

dreaming in reverse         or dreaming in the future         serves many purposes on many levels

but can be dangerous

if we find that we are hoping that the yesterdays and tomorrows

might become the todays for us

we get stuck in the traps       lips and arms bound by wire       

 we mouth sentences         dubiously   created

often preceded with the whine of:
why can’t _________ be like it used to

why isn’t/aren’t ________
what happened to _________
how come it can’t be like_________________

then, there we sit

 miserable

 waking up each day detesting one’s current  presence

regretting  awakening day after day into THIS

while missing out what just might in store

one can miss it and still dream of what’s next

just be careful 

 watch out for the quicksand…

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
