In Dreams She Comes (poem)

In dreams she comes to me

A broken memory

Of things not meant to be

Another world apart

-

She whispers come along

A chorus of a song

Whose hold on me seems strong

Amid an empty sleep

-

Her image I can’t place

A mist does veil her face

Yet still I feel a trace

Of what she was to me

-

A kiss mid summer’s trees

The fantasies she frees

A world a time to please

Oh tell me once again

-

And still I hear her call

As reason starts to fall

What lies behind this wall

Which keeps me from her side

-

My passions there she holds

My destiny she molds

As what was real unfolds

Within this realm she roams

-

Then suddenly a knife

Appears to end this strife

If I would pledge my life

To dream for evermore

-

I took it and I prayed

To whom my soul pervade

As my heart felt the blade

And I greeted morning

You are funny in your limericks. But in other genres, you evoke different type of emotions that take you deep within your soul.

The ending was a surprise. We can relate to the heart's rememberance of love and the sadness of it's loss.
