"Words for you"


Blinking, I fell asleep. My mind started drifting immeadiently, images flowing by in darkness. I think there was something about my father; I'm not really sure. Grays eventually began to take place, forming together, hues rising out of monotone, color appearing where there was none. Some sort of form, a creature maybe. It didn't look human, but I couldn't tell. It wasn't alone...there were several, marching. To war? There was a pride to their movements, a sense of purpose and intention.
