A dream within a dream

woke up

from a dead slumber

to find myself

buried deep within

the womb of earth

rustic red smell

fill my nostrils

squirming limbless

beatless, breathless

a void, inside a void

wriggling, wrestling

maggots and worms

in the inside of my

sweaty palms


rocks in pebbles

lost in identity

render me vague

extinct, inexplicably

shoots like stars

tentacles or tendrils

growing up and above

free but trapped

there but unaware


in their amidst

a dream within a dream

to last as long as they
