i had a dream 
that i was pulled 
through time
like an arrow
fast forward 
i flew
halls of decay
decked for demolition
my body falling away
like peeling paint
all my
left in the dust

    Like how your words take flight like a shot arrow. "All my emptiness left in the dust" …Can definitely relate to that feeling. Fantastic line in an excellent poem. Cheers

    Holy you-know-what! This is incredible, and the way it aligns with the spooky photos – Did you take those??? I LOVE – "Halls of decay, decked for demolition" (a small parallel to Xmas?) and "my body falling away like peeling paint…" Shoot. I LOVE the whole thing. I want to savor this one.
