I lay my head

I lay my head  upon the softness of its mane My white charger, no knight for a swain as I am the gallant rider looking for love. Riding the green valleys with mountains above, looking for hope in natures  fertile plain A dream, a carousel  of  tears  and  pain With bobbing horses making  a colourful train Flying above a sure sign of hope, a dove I lay my head  Imagination in play as I search in vain Why from happiness  must I abstain My empty heart crying out to those above  Praying each night, please bring me love  Grabbing a handful of the silky white mane I lay my head

Wow another one I missed. This is definitely one of my favorites. I can't even make a long winded psychological comment lol, just wow on topic, imagery, and the way you used language to express everything. Great job.
