Near Dream's Borders

I walked the reaches
Of dream's borderlands
Where the walls are high
And there is no sentry
But for the wolves
Who howl for night
But the borderlands
Bear no darkness
Nor the depth
Of that foul lair
The domain for that
Is nightmare
Where the demon prince
Is sitting in his throne
In the land
Where lesser men fall
And lay entombed by fear
And failed dreams
Returning from my sleep
I walked the lands
Where night is forbidden
And light is eternal
And I am held
In the warmth of that place
Forever after
