Walking Through Sleep and Dreams
-- an indriso


In sleepwalking, the mind does not transfer;
It stays within its doze, and bides the night,
While restless feet trespass where dreams may spur.

In dreamwalking, the body does not stir;
It lies upon the sheets in soft moonlight,
While wayward thoughts reach out to him or her.

The mind and body each may take their flight;

They're bound together, but not locked -- not quite.
