Amid frozen dreams and falling skies,
A rush of blood flows to the heart - 
Till its walls fall – leaving us alone.

Follow me –
Your heart beats like mine.

Around us lies a world,
Loud and incoherent 
With its clinging and clanging,
Drowned out by hearts
Beating as one.

Free from the chains
Of this world and its ties –
That bind.

Follow me –
Until we find,
The world as we want it to be 
Somewhere beyond a rainbow,
Where worries and cares 

A world where stars and skies collide
Where heartbeats and dreams live.
Forever –
Heartbeat as one

Once Upon a Dream

A Man did Fly
Oceans pull us down.
If we fall in love with the sun - 
We fall from the sky.
But - in these dark days,
There is nothing left to learn
Except how to fly.
So - teach me to fly, 
Or cushion my fall below - 
To hell’s dark fire.

Writer's Note
I've never understood the Myth of Icarus, or maybe as a young boy, reading the story of Icarus and Daedarus, I took the wrong lesson from it. 
Yes, Icarus flew too close to the sun, but briefly, if only for a short while, he flew higher than any man had ever flown before. He lived more in those few seconds than if he had lived a thousand more years.
Yes, Icarus flew too close to the sun, but he still flew.

What Dreams are Made of

The Mythology of Creation and the Creation of Mythology

“The Mythology of Creation and The Creation of Mythology: The very act of creation (and is that not what myth making is), is a shared act. When I write "the sky is blue", there is a world of meaning behind it, but more importantly, there is a world of meaning still to be created by those that read such simple words”
All dream...but not equally

There is a strong connection between dreams, storytelling and myths. If myths and the making of myths (and is that not what storytelling is?) are a way for humanity to resolve its existential dilemmas, dreams (unconscious mythmaking) could be said to serve the same purpose. We make meaning of our world by the mythmaking process. In dreams, as in storytelling, we make meaning not just of the world, but of ourselves.
