Suspended Reality



Suspended reality. I light my way to the moon through my mind's eye and float above turbulent waters. Slow motion makes the pain drain from my near lifeless body. Behind me, a forest full of secrets lurks-- I shut it out building a wall of fog that blends the truth with my fiction. When will I awake from this dream?

  10. "...a wall of fog that blends the truth with my fiction." I wonder if the next step will turn that mixt wall into a reality where she can fly lucidly and free.
