I fell~ asleep
It was easy to fall*
I slipped~ into a dream
When I couldn't get a grip*
.           ***         .

I hate WHAT you did to me..
Inside are things you can't see..
Do you want me to PRETEND a smile?
I think I'll stay in my slumber of denial..

Like a pack of candy,
you where excited to open me up!
After a while you kept your mouth shut.
This Love Label came with NO WARNING sign.
WHAT happen to cloud nine?

Secretly you ended this.
With one broken KISS!
In the back of my mind when I close my eyes..
My thoughts are still searching for that one surprise..
A piece of puzzle in the making, 
The piece that will clear up my skies...

I can't live my life in peace...
Knowing my heart was filled up with your disease...
Like a dreamer you made me fall into deep...
Now I'm lost in a realm of sleep..
This dream has not expired,
I'm overdue when it comes to counting sheep..

This is only a bad dream?
Wake me up! 
Hear me scream!
WHAT! I'm not screaming?
Come on, I got to be dreaming! 
Do you mean this isn't a dream?

    A lot of hurt and anguish expressed in this piece, The dream of true love has proved illusive for many of us . I've come close a couple of times but it wasn't to be , I allowed work to rule my life for far too long but I'm still dreaming . Somewhere out there in this big wide world is the person I'm meant to be with . So however illusive Skat , Continue to dream.

    The alternate reality that we live in, when outside of that once favored position. It's a dream like state, but more of a nightmare, but all nightmares eventually end. We sometimes feel a little fear about the reoccurring ones, but what time doesn't erase, I can't finish because I am now inspired to wirte something lol. Oh what the heck, the things that time doesn't erase, and that love can't replace, really aren't good for us anyway. They don't allow us to grow, they imprison us, I think?

    I absolutely love this poem, SKAT! I can relate to this completely..... Sometimes our worst nightmares happen to us when we are awake....Thank you for all of your encouraging comments on my work. I really appreciate it!

    I liked it! Truthfully, I think dreams are a way to escape reality, but I suppose they can imprison a person as well. I liked this one ^_^ dreams can become lovely too or nightmares.

    I like this one, Skat! I like the frustration, the anger and the pain, all wrapped up and trapped in the dream. I could feel the pain..good job and keep up the great work. Always, Laura

    Nice poem Skat-Oz, it's fairly easy to relate to, though it remains your emotions. Not easy to achieve. The writing style also leaves the conventions of poetry creating a real voice to the poem. Cheers.

    Love and creation not always an easy trip but if you don't lose your mind your ever changing perception will lead you to good things. Hope your happy now SKAT-OZ And yes I truly enjoyed your poem. Rock On always Michael
