falling asleep underneath
the watchful stars
I stumble in my dreams
to blink in confusion
and sliding behind dark clouds
the blood red moon
tears at my sanity
translucent footprints lead
temptingly into
the endless night
but I can not follow
the tingling numbness of snow
underneath my feet and in my hair
alone again in the emptiness
even the crickets fall silent
in your memory
perhaps, if only
my mind could rest as well
the distant moon
warns, beckons, chides
but I turn away
in shame
and guilt

Context? Sometime following the events in
the forest of barriers (trying to keep the spoilers
down to a mild roar). Comments? I'm a big
K&K fan, so I'm not certain where this one
came from...but anyhow, it was just one of
those nagging things that just begs to be
written. Have I lost everyone in vagueness?
Ah well, it's late at night...
