I imagine a glass orb

sprinkling fragments of light

among darkened spaces

like a painting I hang

up the walls of my room

a permanent fixture

swimming before my eyes

what I want to be

it’s all there

what I wish to be


it’s beautiful

someday, I can be like the glass orb

before sleep carry me away

but I shall never sleep

till I am done dreaming.
