Unattainable Dream

I thought it was love,
  But it wasn’t.
I thought it was joy,
  But it was sadness.
I thought it was pleasure,
  But it was pain.
I thought it was ecstasy,
  But it was a dream.

    This is a good poem too, I like the way you describe the feelings and end it with a dream. I have dreams that seem so real and I'm glad they're dreams. DN

    That's why I have learned to stay out of the love trap... I now enjoy close friendships with no commitments, but then I'm 60 years old! It's most likely different for you... good luck my friend! Best wishes, your grandfather!
