I keep on going to sleep

and waking up and talking back

to characters in the dreams


It doesn’t scare me

I’m not hurting anyone


I’m hearing voices

but I have to believe

this too will pass


I keep thinking about

riding in the gondola

of a hot-air balloon


We have no control over

where we night end up


We are at the mercy of the elements


I am hearing voices

and I talk back to them

out loud


No way to control where I’m going

No way to control where I’ve been


I’m alive, I’m free, and one thing for sure

I’m not going to hurt anyone, I won’t inflict

my trauma on anyone else
