Moonchild Dreams


Morphine dreams

To dream of calm after the storm
Of verdant grass and cherry blossoms
Of wild adventures into the sea
Or grounds of ancient civilizations
Of happy days and passion feelings
Of bucket lists and life of purpose
Delicious drinks and gourmandises
Of friendships found and never lost
Of childhood years and innocence

While Morphine runs through her veins
Sedating her painful heat
Like a wounded animal appeases
In the woods of a wintry night
