A Dream

It is only in sleep, that I unleash my soul Released in my dreams, where no one can know Tumbling upward, note by note A midnight song that is written for him Into the dim of my reverie's whim And only the night can measure the quake Submerged by the light, as the morning sun breaks It is only in sleep I can unleash all my tears Held in the arms of the midnight sky Briefly rocked by a cradle of stars Where moon at my window can swaddle my trembles Soothed by the hours, away from the day Away from the morning that steals him away And again and again, I will stand in the sun While the world only sees a confident me Spreading more sun, spending more me… Spreading my wings, spreading me thin….. Unleashed desire, I will scatter like seeds A song from my heart, is the lute that I play While pictures I'm dreaming will not go astray Intact I must keep them my secret, someway It is only while sleeping I am free with my words Unleashed from all judgment, nor pride, or shame Released to the night, my passion untamed Revealing self doubt that was hidden away From the whisper of sleep, I unleash all my charms Tumbling upward, to the moon up above I would rather be sleeping, and die in his arms than to be wide awake, but to never know love ________________________________________ For "A Dream" Contest: 5/17/14

Carrie, you have the three qualities that make for winning poetry.. A great beginning, an amazing middle, and an incredible ending. So many poets have the first two.. Your poems, like this one, pop at the end.. A true winner!
