I Walk Alone

Here, as I wander
Many roads, many paths
All one shall see
Is I walk alone

She appeared, like a dream
Like the mist of night
Or the fog of morning light
But I swear she was there

I reached to touch
The sweet taste of what was
I longed for the past
Yesterday, when dreams were dreams

I could smell the fragrance
The smell of morning lily’s
One could taste even the air
And feel the suns grasp of the day 

Such desires burn deep
Within our souls, should one believe
Or so I have been told
As a withering candle, my desires have faded

Tears, oh the tears have faded
The heart grows, only in  the desires for thing past
And yet the heart, sands of time, becomes a desert
The music still plays, and I still walk

    Amazing! I really enjoyed this piece, I could feel exactly what you did/character did in this. Great!

    '...the sun's grasp of the day,' '...yet the heart...becomes a desert,' such emotional phrasing. Wistful, sorrowful, exceptional! Best wishes, Keith

    Thanks for dropping in on my page & leaving such an AMAZING comment. I really enjoy this read. It has great imagery, great depth between conscious & semi conscious. I absolutely love to dream, however find my self disappointed as well, that it's to be continued or never to be revisited again...

    Nicely done Arthur! You've tackled the theme well -past desires have the habit of entrenching themselves in our dreams. Well written!
