the dark beyond

Sunday, June 3rd, 2007

I had a dream of a place I didn’t want to leave. All were present; friendship, kindness, compassion, warmth, cuteness. There were some people there I knew, also. It was the end of our time together and all were gathered as in a wilderness around a lantern, while beyond the light loomed loneliness and terror.

We were busy with packing and preparing to leave, and seeking every opportunity to delay. We lingered with each other, as if that were a solution to the approaching problem.

I woke before we finished saying goodbye.
