The Quest (The Edge Of A Dream)

He hung on the edge of a dream,
          wanting to go further,
to ponder, plunder it's depths.
 
It resisted him, but not for lack of desire;
it needed him to keep longing.
 
He scaled a cliff to get here,
he left all convention behind.
 
The dream wanted his attention,
it pined to reveal itself,
          but it hungered for nothing else
          other than that.
 
His pursuit was all that mattered in the end.
His reasons were mere rocks
           tumbling under his feet.
