The Grey Dreamer

A place for my short written pieces.

"Just Like Fallen Angels"

We’re just like fallen angels
Those sad, pathetic things
We’re sent to traverse this world of ours
With bruised and broken wings

And when we’ve found ourselves here
Lost and all alone
We come to find we can’t recall
The place we once called home

There is a sadness in our memory
For a place of long ago
A castle in the sky that we
Never again shall go

So we take these broken wings of ours
And set out to repair
The very thing that separates us
From what only mortals dare

And when we’ve gained the strength
To force our wings to fly
We gather up all of our pride
And take up to the sky

But something strange begets us
Like a loud shot from a gun
We know we’ll never reach it
No one can reach the sun

Because once you’ve been sent here
There’s only one way out
It’s that whispered word that haunts us
And fills us up with doubt

Once you’ve passed the gate
That broad, forgotten fen
They say no one that goes that way
Ever comes back again

The only thing that’s left here
The one act left to do
Is to live a mortal life here
And die like mortals too

For in mortality we must
Search until we find
The very thing that sets us free
And the very thing that binds

For in this life we have three dreams
Three hidden, secret tasks
That we must complete for
Our creator that asks

And once we complete all three
Then and only then
Will we see the shinning place that is
Our long-lost home again

So mortals though we are
With wings graying and old
One day we will find them
Brightly lined with gold

But until the final day doth come
When our last task is complete
We’re sentenced to never fly again
Lost to wander on our feet

"The Cheshire Cat"

I'm neither here nor there,
nor anywhere because everywhere,
you see,
for I'm a Cheshire cat
and in Cheshire cats
grin so wide you can't tell where the grin
ends and the sky begins!
