Sweet Sleep: A Poem by Mizzery

Step into my mind for a bit. Who knows? You may like it here.


In my dreams you come and whisk me away

We're wrapped up in each other with nothing to say.

In my dreams life is perfect when I am with you

Never before have I known love that's so true


In the night you come to me and do everything right

Your words and your actions set my heart alight!

In the night when you're with me no problems exist

It's hard to believe how much I have missed.


When I am asleep I'm the one you adore

There's no one else that could want me more.

When I am asleep I could die in your arms

You've succeeded in capturing me using your charm.


But when I awake I realize you're not even there

It's all in my head, this sordid affair

When I awake my world crushes down around me

Because I can only have you each night in my dreams.

"This sordid affair"? Doesn't sound sordid to me, sounds beautiful. Thanks for sharing

tonymac04 - although it is beautiful, it's sordid at the same time... i'll leave it at that. ; ) Thanks for commenting! : )

ralwus - one can only dream of something so beautiful... even if I never have "him", i will always have "his" fantasy. ; )

This is a lovely poem - but a bit sad. I'm into poems a lot and to me it seemed like it was about a Lost love.

Lovely, deep poem. Thanks.

Lady_E, the reason I love poetry so much is because it reads differently for everyone. When I write it, it may mean something completely different from what someone else interprets. But it could still connect with them. I love it. Thank you for stopping by. : )

Maita, once again, you've nailed it! There is a longing, a great longing. It's always been there and I'm not sure if it will ever be fulfilled. Who knows, but one could only hope. : )
