The Imperfection of Dreams..........

But then ....why do young men dream anyway
don't they know the answers
Yes I admit it .....I dreamt once too
of some such stars finally aligning
Each time the shy boy tryed he was
shot down in flames
But on I dreamt anyway........
I dreamt of lotion softened flesh
velveteen dresses brushing against
broken hearts
Of the softest hands wrapped at my
temples.......
And whispers too
I can't leave that out now
Her breath heating mine from the
blizzards of life
And I dreamt of sounds .....the ones that
only a woman makes
And she made them for me
But where did my dreams go
I haven't seen them
in quite some time
ahh the imperfection of dreams
Such are the thoughts
of grown men

Sometimes dreams are all we have left, sometimes they keep us sane. On the other hand dreams can drive us crazy especially those dreams that don't come true.

BTW you have really romantic dreams.....lol
