Narcissus Process II

I dreamt of a river that was my dream.
On its surface, I saw my face reflected,
Like that of narcissus, placid, serene…

And I wonder:
How is it to be trapped within the thin layer
That separates two substances, two states.

To have one’s likenesses
Forever banned from physical existence,
A mere dispersion, pure image…

I was irresistibly drawn to that surface,
My thoughts and my longing melting away.
I felt ashamed for my desires…

So I turned away.
