Elephants

Tags: crush

I dreamed of elephants
Stately protectors upon them
Trampling all of lesser ilk.

And who should they ride to?
What jewel drives them?
Do they care the name?

Majesty and mystery
Loneliness and sadness
Of both sides in my vision.

In daylight I find my fears
Crashing upon me like those terrible legs
Crush as they try, it's no avail.

Too late, too late
What remains has dried and shrunk
Dark and pitiful like the mouse.
