The Starlit Witch of My Dreams – Written Monday 9th December 2019 (Aged 44)

The Starlit Witch of My Dreams

the starlit witch of my dreams
came from the days
of unknown feeling
and buckets i could not keep
days when my bed was a different world
and a different world found my sleep
days when i was smaller
and parents lit cigarettes
as the smoke of discarded attachments
drifted to the sky
days of four channel entertainment
days when i would have to learn why
the starlit witch of my dreams

the starlit witch of my dreams
proved stellar when i wanted to escape
with their dystopian banquets
they feasted on my sleep
days with toys
that i could not keep
days when parents clattered into hurdles
because they could not leap
i watched my screens slowly crack
i rushed to the end of my bed
wondering if i would ever come back
the starlit witch of my dreams
