The Other Side of Day

Sweet silence descends
as the world of mind
is put to sleep and dreams arise
just on the other side of day
where magic plays in opposition
to the supposed rationality
of this society.

The masks we wear just fade away;
personas melt in moonlit rays,
and feelings come to bear upon
the moods and attitudes
we have assumed within a world
of should and ought to be.

Some awake in nightmare sweats
seeing only darkness there
beyond the other side of light;
yet those who seek will find a path
into the realms of pure delight
where children play
and lovers love
the night and day away...
