Unaware Loop

Footsteps heard that made no sound
A rainbow tunnel expanding before me
Run fast
I must catch who is at the end
Opening into a cloudless sky
Fingertips grasp away
Pull back, prepare
Throwing out my
Claws sinking in
To my neck from behind
All this time
Who I was chasing

A dream come full circle
From some 20 years ago
Everything exactly as it was

I stare at a younger self
Radiating with vibrant colour
He stare back at
The shadow that came
In the dream of which I was fully awake

All this time
All this time
I’ve been dreaming?
