days of heaven

i’ve been dreaming of a seamless existence
a quilted memory
pipelined passion
baited breath, ready
for the unexpected adventure

my fluttering chest won’t ever rest

it will never surrender to the endless fields before me
the wind whips across my lips, my body
bends in its breeze

i’ll sleep easy tonight, knowing that
blood still pumps in my veins
and that each passing moment is another chance

to begin again
