unmasking the bear
i dreamed of bears, or rather, a bear. it stalked me everywhere i walked in that mistshrouded country i enter when i sleep. it was always there, this bear emerging from deep woods, appearing suddenly upon my porch, clawing powerfully against whatever door i closed, trailing me with primal purpose. i ran, and felt it coming right behind. i hid, and heard it clawing through the entrances to my every refuge. no sanctuary could i find that the bear would not discover. i knew not where this beast had birthed nor why it was intent on my destruction; all i knew was that it sought me as its prey. i told you of the bear. you puzzled with me on the terror this shadow predator cast upon my waking. we never reached a rational conclusion. it wasn't 'til you crushed me in that final savage hug (your claws hot knives decliviting the butter of my flesh) and i saw your ragged feral fangs, recognized your hot and bloody breath against my face, heard your ursine growl, that i knew the bear was you. 2010 Regina Coeli deWinter
