Paralyzed in Sleep

from And Her Whisper Becomes a Storm by Shannon Curtis



I woke up from a dream
And I woke up
Everything was as it’s been
Yet nothing was

I saw a world bloom in living color
Everybody held belonging arms to one another
Is it real?
Is it possible?

A buried seed in the ground
A death like sleep
Body prone and all guards down
The prophet speaks

I saw a world, clean air and crystal water
Everybody held enough to have and share and prosper
I saw a world, my waking eyes no doubt would doubt it
But in this liminal realm the truest truth whispers the loudest

It feels real
It feels possible
It feels real
Must be possible

We are paralyzed in sleep so we can’t run away
From truth spoken in dreams
Paralyzed in sleep so we can’t run away
From our own dreams
