Prose - Dreaming To Live

Updated on May 1, 2011

Where no voice
Will resonate
And no candle
Can illuminate
You exist
Telling me to hush
My longing
As I rush
To bed
Once again
Leaving the world
And my pain
Of separation
From all I seek
Living day to day
Week to week
Without you
With others
By fate
Life laughingly
Dangling my mate
Before closed eyes
Offering a glimpse
A relapse
Of hope
As reality drives
Towards a morning
I hope never arrives
Wake me not
For love cannot see
When all you have
Are dreamscapes to believe
Will you be there
As dusk gathers itself
Devouring the light
All questions
To be answered by you
My dream lover
Do you long for me too?

      @duffsmom - thank you... this is a stylish component to the form I guess but I've evolved into a manner of communicating that attempts to get your attention in this ADD world with short bursts that while sparse contain much emotional impact. Hopefully then the reader craves the next line.

      @Teylina - thank you again for your kind remarks. Dreamscape seemed to be the right word for the middle of the night dream that leaves a hazy memory for the morning. I like this style and will continue to use it...

      @attemptedhumour - Thanks man... don't be jealous dude!

      @chspublish - thank you! We all have that longing at times. Some have that person by their side; others are still searching....

      Since first heard the coined "dreamscapes" years ago, it's always conjoured a passage of time for me. This was beautifully written. Like duffsmom, I like the style here--not sure which grabbed me more: how you wrote or what you wrote or, more probably, how you wrote what you wrote. For me, one of your best. Thank you.

      I love the style of this. The way you have written it, with no stanza breaks and no punctuation, drives the reader forward, with no chance for a breath--and so when reading it creates a feeling of anticipation and movement. Well done!
