Deep within my cave of dreams,
nothing's ever what it seems.
It comes upon me without warning, and fills my heart with dread,
a violent, shocking acquiescence that I might join this bed.
To join the leagues of broken souls
who live forever as forgotten bones.
Lost inside, they seek themselves,
wandering forever in this labyrinth of stone.
I'll go to dust as everything must.
I'll fade away in time.
But for now I refuse to waste away
and attempt to make the climb.
