Departure – Wayne Russell

Dreams of death
of the duality of life
never-ending cycle
cloaked in darkness
married in soft throes
of light.

What was all of this?
If not just a dream
The universe was strewn out
before us like a red carpet
beneath our naked feet.

Soft kiss in the complexities
of intrusive lies
waves crash down upon all
casting crowns
straddled upon a myriad of doors
awaiting our departure.
