Ponderous Awakening

dreams unfold.
the fog lifts.
is it the past?
or things to come?
can one know
when they won’t remember
come the morning light
what was revealed
during the night?

but if I remember
every time
every dream
every event
my over-worked synapses
create in their down-time
what advantage do I have?

I envy those
who forget
the creatures of
nightmares
because for me
they become
the creatures of
daily thought
no longer
living in shadows
unafraid of light
