Photo Challenge #52

Into a Dream Beata Cervin

Beata Cervin

My feet only skirt the breeze

Who needs roots when the soil

Is fed on shit and slivered screams.

I rummage through a contagious womb

My femininity is of no solace to me.

Those things which cannot be seen

Must be stolen if they are to be tamed.

My heart once clear, is now opaque

Dreams enter but they never retreat.

When the lights flare I slip back

Into the drain praying for the water

To wash away the evidence.

Insignificant and unsubstantiated

There is nothing more toxic

Than those lozenges of truth

Which hover for a time and then dissolve.

  1. It was an interesting photo. I went with a more borderline grey rather than dark piece. Yours though, reminds me of women who have been taken advantage of, who are trying to reach for freedom.

    The last two lines are also very dramatic. Wanting yet unable to attain truth.

    —WOW, Yves! This is scathing…..and those lozenges of truth…wow, wow, wow! Phenomenal!

    what an interesting line…

    wow, what a cool truth…i will def be thinking about this…as well as those lozenges of truth there in the end….solid piece…

  4. Breathtaking lines. Powerful and gripping. The dark imagery from the pinks and fluid clothing. She does look as if the world had taken so much out of her, she needs to rest on dream-like bubbles.
