dream nook


i think and sink

in teams of dreams

soaking deeper

into the realm of me

faintly floating

away from breath

somewhere in between

sleep and death

in the sacred circle

where my true self's hidden

where magic dwells

and logic's forbidden

last night i was running

i do not know why

but my fear faded fast

as i sung a lullaby

i sit in my forest

and listen to trees

they remind me again

of the better parts of me

they whisper the answers

i already know

and comfort my fears

they allow me to glow

its where i am me

and truly at home

and though i am there

i am not alone

roots and herbs and flowers and faun

its when the darkness fades

and approaches the dawn

that i am left uneasy

at the thought of the sun

and long to creep back

under covers and be done.

its never enough...

the nights i am free

of everything tumbling

on top of me

in the forest i can play

like i was a girl

once again without cares

i can dance and twirl

i can skip stones

and lay under willow

i can read aloud

using innocence as my pillow

or i dig into earth

feeling root in my grasp

to figure out why

all my pain seems to last

passion and meaning

words without voice

what was supposed to be...

had i had the will...or the choice

falling in love

every night of my life

as my head hits the pillow

night after night

sweet dreams come to me

my lover

my friend

and we'll dance the moon dance

all over again

inside darkened forest

where i truly rest

overtake my soul

my one and only rest.

deep within me i crave you

when i am not there

down inside i obey you

so sacred and rare.

i take in your wisdom

and bathe in your breath

goodnight my dear forest

.......................................wait for me.

"faintly floating

^my fave part :)

"Oh how my heart does wander,

to places over yonder

where lilly's dance and glitter

my heart does patter, pitter.

Into a fairytale dream

where stars brightly gleam,

just within my reach

I can touch the sky's feet.

and burst into flight,

I will soar this lovely night

until the break of dawn

when my eyelids open with a stretch and yawn

and all is broken

that magical spell, I've awoken."

Oh wow, what a truly beautiful poem...I was there in the forest with you... what an amazing place, and i love how you personalise the description of it...

"...i sit in my forest

and listen to trees

I see why you call it dream nook. It is wonderful. :)

when i am not there

down inside i obey you

so sacred and rare."
