The 22-Year-Old Male Who Writes Lyrical Poetry: 'Living The Dream'

Updated on December 8, 2016

Living The Dream

This moment will end,
Once we’re awake.
So tired in love,
Our eye-lids start to blink,
That our heart-rate sank,
And we slowly drift asleep.

Can I forever stay asleep?
Where I don’t have to feel a thing,
And the only time I see you, is in my dreams.

You’re everything I want,
And can never be.
But won’t you keep your head up high,
Until your feeling slowly subsides.
An endless world of words,
Because we’re still asleep –
I hope you wake up soon, from living in this dream.

What a lovely waste of our precious time,
This love, that I’m loving, and we’ll never have.
Simply living the dream.
Giving everything,
To see you;
For even just one more time,
And hoping that you’ll stay in mine.

Oh how selfish of me, to dream,
That we never let this pass us by.
Soon just two awkward stranger passers-by.

If only,
I could break all sense of reality,
Waking up and it still being real.
Only in my dreams and nowhere else.

Oh how I hope,
And I’ll pray,
That maybe one day, someday,
I might be singing up on-stage;
A serenade,
To help you remember me:

“I never intended,
For the stars to align,
So perfectly.
For you living this dream of mine, with me,
And oh how I wish that you were mine.
Since our eyes gave way,
Our minds,
They intertwine.

And at 11:11 last night,
I simply wished for you and I.

I simply wished that you were mine,
In another life…..”

      I was actually thinking the same thing the other commenter expressed; you would make a great song writer Darius.

      This was a beautiful poem with very strong conviction, much like an epic song would be sung.

      Great job, as always! :)

      Very intense and same time a song like poem.

      You must try writing lyrics for singers.
