How To Write Poetry: To A Dream

Updated on December 1, 2011

To A Dream

I am too proud to express my pain
Too self-conscious to enjoy my world
Because we learn not to trust words
All that I speak is done in vain

My limitations are lost in translation
Found in the places where you and I touch
You perceive that which is real
My purest thought does not mean much

Dismiss me and I will pretend
My emotions wash away with the rain
In fact I felt your love transcend
My mood until we meet again

I only know my own thoughts well
Of yours I know what you will tell
Dare I try to know you more?
Should the river change its course

Down In the delta we make love
Beyond pride and the pry of eyes
These quiet words I read aloud
You have known no touch as mine

I am absorbed in a dream I had
Absolved only by the highest judge
Truth is spoken from my mouth
Beneath my brow is all that is good

I rest gently with in a storm
Brewing tumultuously between norms
Poetry is the fingerprint of my passion
As I press on pages it takes form

Each day we spend apart is a dandelion
That shivers against love’s swift wind
I feel anguish in our distance
Reminisce on the fragrance of your skin

I should have put this down years ago
I glance towards a burgundy sky
We trample meadows under toe
Unconcerned as time passes us by

I leave my fingerprints in notes
That you read for a moment and discard
Expression is in every word that I wrote
A love beyond this stony heart
