THE DREAM I LIVE

THE DREAM I LIVE



Oh, how much I dread the
Coming of night,
Not 
For its darkness 
Or its
Shadows’ frightening dances
On the walls
BUT 
Cause of night’s charming 
Companion, 
Whom no eyelids, 
Burdened with the toils of day, 
Could ever resist,                                                      
YES, 
This charismatically delightful
Lord of the dreams,
Sleep is the name.

It is he who into his                    
Magic palaces to allure, me,
Awaits,
Into his citadel of mesmerizing 
Dreams:
Of Kingdoms and riches and
Pleasures unending,
However,
All efforts in tempting me
My eyes to close for his marvels to see,
Miserably fail,
As, gallantly, with all my might
I resist not into his
Compelling trap to fall,
FOR
The dream I live with you,
My love,
I don’t wish, with any of his dreams,
To EXCHANGE!

wow, lack of sleep for wanting only to be with your love. Very romantic stuff!! I have a great affection for that sand man. With all my stress lately, he takes me away to another place at least for the night!! Keep up with your creative pen.

I agree Demetrios' with your comment to Abigail but I think it's a bit understated! LOL She seems to live and breathe love and romance! You have provided us with another masterpiece, my good friend! I bow to your poetic genius! Kudos!

What a heavenly poem...full of passion and depth. It is truly beautiful. We all love to live the dream...but sometimes life constrains us and kills our dreams. It is beautiful to keep the romantic in us hopeful. I love this beyond words...A 777!
