Endless Sleep (poem)

Updated on June 3, 2013

I wake from dream I had last night

I turn to you and hold you tight

A fear departs within a kiss

As once was wrong now seems alright

-

As morning stirs a promised bliss

And yesterday I can dismiss

Your beauty there it waits for me

And all I know it flows from this

-

Forever this was meant to be

A glimpse into a fantasy

Where lovers share a timeless dance

In winds of shear reality

-

Another kiss I dared to chance

From there to drift into romance

And join the clouds amid the sky

That touch the stars within your glance

-

Those stars that drift amidst a lie

Of someone else who shares your sigh

Reflection in a tear you weep

Which searches for the reasons why

-

A vengeance calls my soul to reap

Our hands upon our throat did leap

Twas there we felt our hopes take flight

Twas there we passed to endless sleep

      m, as the song, your poem has a melancholy tone, yet expresses hope, since sleep never ends. Great choice of photos, too. Voted up.
