Whispering of wishes ........poetry

Updated on February 17, 2015

These unspoken promises
these dreams
these desires are but a solo
journey to solitude
and you will learn
dreams are for small boys
and fools

The boy will grow to a man
the dreams fall by the way
that beauty that you dream of
but an illusion
and that all love is but
a ruse ?

Love ends up in but one smile
that dream but a silent
dust covered vision
and the all important lesson
dreams are but empty vessels
sailing upon a bottomless

      This is a piece that grabs you and makes me want to say, " What would we do without dreams? " I hope you got it all out of your system? Now smile, ok..Cheers.

      Great lines and a compulsion to wrestle with the reality that "empty vessels sailing upon a bottomless sea" aptly describes our dreams. Good work!

      Ed this is very thought provoking. I still dream and I am certainly not a young man. But now I enjoy my dreams for what they are -- empty vessels.
