Only Dreaming

 

moon

years later

long after

you died

I dreamed

of you

in the dream

you were sixteen

again

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
