Time Travellers or Hamlet's Mill
(Metaphysical Love and the time travelling mind)
You visited my dream last night,
beyond boundaries of time and space,
sliding between layers of sleep
and consciousness, to find a place
where infinite dimensions meet.
There dancing constellations trace
magic symbols on the boundless sky.
We stood; and watched time pass us by,
saw past and future all as one
unravelling before our eyes.
We sailed the Nile on a reed barge,
watched Sarum's great henge arise,
and saw self - righteous cant betray
a human being's sacrifice
all for the sake of greed and lust.
And Hamlet's Mill ground time to dust.
Your hand found mine, the stars moved on
and neither of us said a word.
For an hour, or maybe for all time
what passed between us could be heard
through the entire universe.
All things were one, death seemed absurd
as our bleak world moved far away.
We wanted nothing but to stay,
Love was the unifying force
and we, no longer curious
walked silently towards the stars.
Words then only seemed spurious
when silence spoke of everything.
We were the whole, all things were us.
We were gone when morning came
to gather up exhausted dreams.
