Poem: Fragments of a Dream

Fragments of a Dream

Fragments of a Dream stutter my sleep

Memories or myths buried so deep

Places I’ve never been, Faces I’ve never seen

Drift across in a luminous sheen


Who are you that haunts my nights

Just in the shadows. teasing the lights

Tears I’ve never shed, lying in my rumpled bed

Melancholy fills my aching head


Something about your face draws me close

There’s an invitation in your brows

Lips I’ve never kissed whisper things that I’ve missed

A feeling of loss I cannot resist


Were you with me in another life

Were you my love, my loss, my strife

Answers I’ll never get, questions I’ll never ask

As I wake up to assume this life’s mask

I love your poetry so much I couldn't resist reading one more before I got up from my computer. This one nearly made me cry - stuttered sleep, something so close yet never to be had, waking to a masked life. Intense and Absolutley Beautiful. Thank you for sharing your gift.

Awesome poem bro, thanks to some friends on Laurinzo's Poetry Place group on FB, which was where I located it.

Yes indeed sweet dreams of that significant other use to be on my mental forecast as well many years back (Today I'm living it with my wife night and day, what a dream come true right, true love!), nicely written, and I'm sharing this one for sure. Nice!
