The future dreamed, Unseen, unrequited,

A Challenge IV/ XVI

The future dreamed, Unseen, unrequited, the sweet fragrance of then:

Forever forever forevermore,

Forever forever forevermore, Promises made, kept, forgotten

Forever forever forevermore, Promises made, kept, forgotten Altars covered in dust, Twilight perfumed with lust,

Tinted visions that smell like Dreams

Tinted visions that smell like Dreams, buried as if they lived,

Tinted visions that smell like Dreams, buried as if they lived, Covered in dirt, mud silhouettes,

Tinted visions that smell like Dreams, buried as if they lived, Covered in dirt, mud silhouettes, With heartbeats quick as moonlight,

Aching to be washed

Aching to be washed By loving hands,

Aching to be washed By loving hands, held to light by loving hands,

Aching to be washed By loving hands, held to light by loving hands, forged into reality by able minds

Aching to be washed By loving hands, held to light by loving hands, forged into reality by able minds And capable, loving hands.

But the dreams of twilight

But the dreams of twilight Don't see, couldn't know

But the dreams of twilight Don't see, couldn't know the smell of sweat, sweet

But the dreams of twilight Don't see, couldn't know the smell of sweat, sweet In a plume of stillness,

But the dreams of twilight Don't see, couldn't know the smell of sweat, sweet In a plume of stillness, Or matching breaths, rising chests

But the dreams of twilight Don't see, couldn't know the smell of sweat, sweet In a plume of stillness, Or matching breaths, rising chests Pushed and pulled in waves.

It can't reveal the shadows,

It can't reveal the shadows, hidden behind the normalcy

It can't reveal the shadows, hidden behind the normalcy of everyday, that shine in silence.

And if it came to pass,

And if it came to pass, A dream that was hoped for came to be

And if it came to pass, A dream that was hoped for came to be Through a killing ruse, A moment

And if it came to pass, A dream that was hoped for came to be Through a killing ruse, A moment in time, and a whirling muse,

And if it came to pass, A dream that was hoped for came to be Through a killing ruse, A moment in time, and a whirling muse, to that sacred ground they'd go,

Ancient and worn, Hallowed stone,

Ancient and worn, Hallowed stone, With power and blood and emotion,

Ancient and worn, Hallowed stone, With power and blood and emotion, A monument to devotion

Amidst the fumes at Delphi

Amidst the fumes at Delphi Beneath the ancient stones,

Amidst the fumes at Delphi Beneath the ancient stones --If they ever granted visions--

Amidst the fumes at Delphi Beneath the ancient stones --If they ever granted visions-- Lie the hopes of a dead millenia,

Amidst the fumes at Delphi Beneath the ancient stones --If they ever granted visions-- Lie the hopes of a dead millenia, The dreams of real things,

If there ever were any

Full of the things that deserve

Full of the things that deserve To be held, to be loved,

Full of the things that deserve To be held, to be loved, By twilight and all her sisters,

If there ever was any.
