Hidden Key

Poets
Dreamers
We dream with eyes open
Manipulators of time and space

Masters of imaginary universes
Warriors
Lovers
Healers

Nothing is beyond our reach
Pen in hand
Heart allowed to flow free
Words the oxygen we breath

Dark
Hopeful
Philosophers of our day
Pointing the way
Wishing to be heard
Will others see beyond the words
To where the wisdom lay
We all have our roles to play

So yes we dream
With our open eyes
Hoping others realize
We don't wish to disguise 
Yet sometimes hearts lie

If you look underneath
The metophor
You will find a key to the hidden door
In the end
Thats all we are asking for

    You make such impressive works look very simple. You have a gift... I'm sure you've worked steadily to improve.

    Thanks again. I have seen a change in my writing since joining the soup. I haven't had any writing training so this has been an education of sorts.

    This a beautifully written piece. I particularly liked following line: Words the oxygen we breath

    Yes those hidden things...I guess we'd just explode if we didn't write!

    That would not be pretty, an epedemic of exploding poets.

    Dreaming with eyes open... wow, I really liked that line! Those that don't write can look at poetry as just make belief, but I've heard someone say that the fictional movies often hold more truth than the daily news. We at times dress it up to make it interesting to read, but beyond the words there's so much more we are trying to say. Awesome work, especially the last stanza!

    you are probably right, as they say art imitating life.
