The poem is below.



Running through a wheat dream
Clear skies, worms and flies, my face cries
Surrounded by silver streams
I stumbled into a valley where sleepness never dies
A manger on fire, burning embryo of lies
no time for final good-bye's

Waking up alone in the middle of a field
Rain falls from the sky, to bless my soul
Above the silver lining of mirrored clouds
I lay a bouquet of flowers on your grave
Angered by the thought of my birth
Where has my salvation gone?

Rescued by the hand, of the one I can not see
Tormented in life's final step 
Silent mistreated never understand
Arid of hate dooming everyday
Something evil ruins the last hold of my hand
My mouth hit by the door, when I pray
A ricochet shot when my life was revealed 
Fallen in and out, after unwanted betrayal tounges 
Alone with my reflection is where I stand
Broken Mirrors, 
the only thing I see!
7 years of current bad luck.

Nicely written verses! Thanks for the welcoming love. Nice to see some people still enjoy writing and reading others writing in this age of the internet and instant gratification.

Hmm, hope the "Broken Mirrors" with their so-called 7-yr bad luck has run out of steam for you. But keep on with your writing these images of "wheat dreams" (such a captivating thought), you take me on a journey of reflection too, with my own memories.
