A still- Captured from Netflix’s “Dark” Season1 Intro

Subconsciously

*To hear me recite it, to the music that inspired it, click HERE

I let myself fall into the mirrored dream-sleep of hazy memories,
of dark nightmares coming down from the ceiling..cages descending over me.
My machine-like finger tips..pick at the blanket looking for security
and all is a dream, a hallucination and where is reality… really?

I’m here now, waiting for what It has to say to me, in this dream.
I have all the time in eternity, as subconsciously, I sift the shifting stream.
Like a gold miner, I pan for some meaning to my existence, in the greater scheme,
while darkened paintings surprise me, and delight me, without answers to redeem.

These verses are pictures from the other side I send to you. so you know where I am,
So you don’t need to worry too much, I am alive and I will return when I can,
but it’s very easy to get caught up, I could get stuck inside and go back to where it began
And start all over…. my thumb resting in my open mouth, a fuzzy blanket in my hand.

I let myself fall into the mirrored dream-sleep of hazy memories,
of dark nightmares coming down from the ceiling..cages descending over me.
My machine-like finger tips..pick at the blanket looking for security
and all is a dream, a hallucination and where is reality… really?

*Inspired by the intro of Season 1 from the amazing German series, “Dark, ” When I was watching this, I was so captivated, I knew this would inspire a poem, of some kind:)

        That’s rather humble of you to say that but yes I understand your point of view you try to keep your language simple so that others can easily comprehend it. That’s a good practice. 👏

    Definitely captured the mood of the source material, ran with it, and made it your own. Love the idea of memories as little time portals, and how they can become a little world of their own, for better or worse.

    • Love this comment Scottius…Yes I am guilty of fan-art:) but when the inspiration hits, you got to go with it..Since you saw the first season, you already had your own sensibilities impacted:) in your own way..I’m sure..I put it next to True Detectives Season One Intro as one of the best I have seen:)
