The Bad Dream and the Photograph

Written By: Daniel Shuttlewood

The Bad Dream & The Photograph

Even in sleep your shadow watches me,
Your whisper rushes through the open room.
As though you moved in silks. Why keep on trying?
Nothing can turn you full-face to the moon.

I feel myself with pains
you cannot feel.
You are contorted
on another wheel…
I feel myself with pains
you cannot feel.
You are contorted
on another wheel…

It is some illness haunts you. Thin as ice.
Your cry draws out my pain and breath in one.
The whole thing flickers to a halt. You fade.
And perhaps I might gape to find you gone.

I feel myself with pains
you cannot feel.
You are contorted
on another wheel…
I feel myself with pains
you cannot feel.
You are contorted
on another wheel…

But only stir and know
You will not sleep…

Gazingly obliquely through the chilly dawn.
For what? Your uneasy trance will never break,
Your smiling never save you from the dark,
Nor I, for knowing
you, be less alone…

Daniel. Shuttlewood 2007
