Labyrinth of Dreams

Labyrinth of Dreams

A Poem by Dezaraye

Written for a contest. It had to be inspired by the picture and have three stanzas with four lines each. I know it's not great or even good ... but it's what came to me.


A world of beauty shattered,
But in my dreams I see,
Bits and pieces of the world I knew,
Fighting to become free.


Elusive dreams, they find me here
Lost and searching in this place.

Where things are scattered, tossed, and torn

And where tears pour down my face.


I feel so small trapped in this place

This labyrinth of dreams

I’ve trapped myself here in my mind

Where nothing’s what it seems.

I love it. It's dreamy and this peculiar sense that it may resemble that of the stress that is "Writer's block" to pull ideas and scenes from to help color your poems..... xoxo -Mark

I think your being too critical of yourself. This is a fine poem with rhymes that never seem forced and a good story packed in three stanzas. Your a very talented writer from what I've read. I'll be reading your stories next. Great job.

Very nicely expressed and well done with the rhyme, the lines fit in perfectly and each new stanza continued on with the meaning. A sad yet, wonderful write.

This is a great piece even although extremely sad. My heart tugged as I read it and feel so very much for the person concerned. If I could hug them....I would.

Thanks for share
