The silence seeps in
Saturating the clothing first
Then the body.

I shiver and wake
To the arms enfolded around me
Like swaddling cloth
And the rhythmic breathing
Of someone about to dream

I'm locked safely in my padded room
with bandages on my wings
Live to fly, fly to live
that's what they say and I can't
In a few days, weeks, months maybe

Now I'm content to be awake
In a dream of the wild days
That once were
and will be again.
