Kat Eggleston: Music

Brian (Outside Eden)

(Kat Eggleston)
Kat Eggleston

I dreamed I saw Brian, on an endless field of something that could have been stainless steel

I knew I was dreaming. That's the only way that anyone alive sees Brian these days.

It was a good dream; we had a good talk, in a place like a moonlit parking lot

I'd left too much unsaid, and I've never learned to pray, 

But somehow, last night I think he heard me anyway.

This morning, I saw someone driving careless on the road;

Someone who's damn lucky, I wonder if he knows.

I heard someone singing, and a very young laugh;

A day among the living after Brian came back.

He floated like a paper doll with hardly any weight,

But still, I recognized him. Brian is always twenty-eight.

I could no more touch him than I could a ray of light,

But I finally got to say good-bye to Brian last night.

I dreamed I saw Brian.
