Dreamer Awaken: A Poem

The Great Expanse

This is a poem again from my teenage vaults. This one is more of an experimental piece. Some of my others were more written in teenage, this one is more just experimental. Maybe with a touch of teenage angst but more of a stream of consciousness poem.


DREAMER AWAKEN (save Me)


Fallen friend, took the dive

Half asleep, half alive

Suspended high, above the earth

Punished now, until his first


Fallen down, among the dreams

Half my wants, half my needs

Darkened now, light won't last

Far below, the overpass


Dream awake

Dream awake

Help me now

Let me wake


Dive down far, get me out

Asleep, alive without a doubt

High above I scream and shout

Punished now I do without


Fallen dreams, within my head

Wants and needs have always led

The darkened light, shades of you

Below the overpass, I am too


Dream awake

Dream awake

Help me now

Let me wake


Fallen crown, kingly might

Half is wrong half is right

I am alone no one is there

Living this burden, no one can bear


Dream awake

Dream awake

For my sake

Ease this ache

Dream awake

Dream awake

Find you fake

You just take

Dreamer awaken...

terrisanzi - I would like to think so, I have progressed, but it is always interesting to look back :)

cherylone - thanks, I just mean experimental in the sense that it sometimes is not clear as to the subject or exactly what I'm saying. Always good to be a little mysterious.

Drtruthman - I'm not sure, I suppose for me it depends on what I come up with that day, sometimes a story or poem, sometimes I have something to say on social issues, other times it's a silly piece or film. Depends I guess. As long as people are reading I will keep writing :)
