Dreams in the Dark

I wonder why I should embark When there are dreams in the dark Dreams of every piece and flavor Drops of sugar, a gift, a favor Wildest eyes I see out Shouldn’t disguise what it’s about It’s not with sleeping or believing But rather with all this seeing Into the night you see beyond I must fight with truth and sound Ideas manufactured in your sleep Are products of the night you should keep They are tied to our past Not knowing its length or its last I produce a wild feeling inside Dreams bring interest opening wide

    All my work comes from dreams that turn into daydreams then into reality on paper.. Michael

    I hear ya Russel...some of my better stuff has come from dreams...I once read that without dreams we would go insane and that dreams are tension relievers and ways of dealing with recent events or even the distant past...Great poem! - Tim
