Only Dreaming


moon
years later
long after
you died
I dreamed
of you
in the dream
you were sixteen
and altogether
beautiful
death had yet
to touch
your brow
your life force
shone out
strong
and proud
and I woke up
wondering
if I was only dreaming
or was it really you
.

      oh so that was him.... you have portrayed him quite real in there... lost moments that still brings us a joy mixed with sadness.

    Oh how very sad! I believe all poems contain truths,dreams, philosophical thoughts , suffering, joys ...nothing is really false...

    1. I try to write only about my own experiences - things that are real to me. I have no time for angels, faeries and 'love' as an abstract - give me flesh and blood any day
