THE DANGER TO DREAMS
The danger to dreams are the adult schemes
that are made when we learn how to lie
the things that we do when faith falls through
are bound to dissatisfy
and you look at me like futility
has loosened the only link
the finality of mortality
is sketched in invisible ink.
The soul is the helmsman that steers the ship
the compass points out belief
but the secrets that lie between heart and lip
are like reefs at the edge of the deep.
