Dreamer Of Not (poem)

Updated on February 9, 2014

Dreamer of not

Things we forgot

Melting in rot

Exit now sought

-

We toss and turn

Emotions churn

I can’t believe it

As questions burn

-

Happiness crossed

Reasoning lost

Is this really happening

Heart bears the cost

-

No rest at all

From painful fall

Someone please tell me

As shadows call

-

Sorrow’s dismay

Lead us astray

This isn’t true

Rainbows turn grey

-

We never knew

How bleak the view

It’s only a dream

Emptiness drew

-

Answering tears

Laden with fears

She isn’t really gone

Flavored by years

-

So in this pain

Doomed to remain

With this refrain

Lost to explain

      Sometimes we need to wait for the pain and sadness to clear before the answers can be heard.

      Some days are not as good as others... it's like I suppose!

      I hope that you have a good day today :-)

      Oh, how bleak and sad, the tone today.

      Only a heart who had felt the emptiness of lost Joy can speak

      such great sorrow.

      Beautifully expressed. Wonderfully written.

      Sometimes our dreams are this vivid - you expressed it so beautifully. Then, we awake and although the sadness is there, we realize it was only a dream - also well expressed. I love the tone, even though it's sad.
