Consumed Pt. II ~ D. James Breaux

everything changes

when nothing stays the same

and the flames


yesterday's treasure

consume the past

and formality

hides the last ember

of an unforgettable fire

because the business of love

is deluxe in stature

when its hour of increase

breaches the heart's gate


the resurrection of feelings


ten thousand lifetimes past

in a midnight garden

of lucid


in a dream awake




Author Notes

CONSUMED ~ D James Breaux

lucid dream (ˈluːsɪd driːm)


a dream in which the dreamer is aware that she or he is dreaming.

The concept of "Consumed" is the gateway to a lonely heart which is caught up in a constant state of lucid dreaming about a love from a different time, consumed by its memory.

In relation to the phenomenon of lucid dreams, Greek philosopher Aristotle observed: "often when one is asleep, there is something in consciousness which declares that what then presents itself is but a dream".

Lucid Dreaming:

A Lucid Dream is when a person dreaming becomes aware that he is dreaming, and is able to influence or control what happens.

There are different types of lucid dreams, such as Dream-Initiated Lucid Dreaming which occurs when you are in the middle of a dream and suddenly realize that you're dreaming. Others are reportedly able to go directly from a waking state into lucid dreaming, which is known as Wake-Initiated Lucid Dream.

Some people believe that Lucid dreaming has benefits including increasing creativity and aiding in problem-solving, and providing an opportunity to practice new skills while in a dream state. Lucid dreaming may also be used in a therapeutic manner, such as providing a safe venue to face one's fears and improve confidence by providing an opportunity to practice social skills.
