What Dreams May Come

What Dreams May Come

A Poem by Doodley
"

Perchance to dream.

"
What dreams may come, to those lost in sigh,
Who cast their hopes upon a crimson sky;
Whose hearts have sunk and drowned in sorrow,
And live for days past and not for tomorrow?

What dreams may come, to those vessels of pain,
Whose memories are flooded by infinite torrents of rain;
Whose minds are not feeble but bodies are racked,
From the beatings of a lifetime now shattered and cracked?

What dreams may come, to those simple and mild,
Whose belief and trust has been abused and defiled;
Whose innocent youth has been stolen away,
And thrown into the wind on a hurricane day?

What dreams may come, to those souls out of time,
Whose breath is now dying like these words without rhyme;
Whose final serenade is to partner the Reaper in dance,
And who plead with all their being for more from their chance?

What dreams may come, to each of us in dying light,
As we shut out reality and lay our heads down at night;
Will our minds fill with wonder and our hearts radiate beams,
Or will we forever remain tormented by the world outside our screens?

Aye, there's the rub. Are those dreams no more than fantasy. The search for happiness sometimes blinds us to reality.
When we reach contentment, surely that is when we have achieved our dream.
I enjoyed the poetic style of this piece as it echoed the colourful images that our dreams portray.

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Valentine. I appreciate your time. Welcome to my poetic domain.
As we grow older, our views of life change and our values sway from side to side. When we know our time is limited....and actually it always is.....we reshuffle priorities. We know that worrying about little things is useless. Dreams are wonderful, but we also have to remember that reality prevents some of the dreams from coming true. We have to learn to adapt to some realities. Indeed, a philosophical write that obviously made me think. lydi**

Such an intense one! Really, you are awesome.
Being able to put forth suffering on one hand and wondering what those pathetic souls expect in life on the other is incredible. Empathy is felt in each letter of your work and with perfect rhymes.
Wondering what dreams may come to each of those souls in the beginning is just incredible.
I am soaked in awe and admiration after reading this piece.
It seems you are a poet to your nerve and perfection personified. And your this one is going to ring in my soul for long...
Kudos to everything, especially the last two stanzas and subject treatment of each stanza.
Thanks for sharing. Keep writing.:-)

We decide our journey my friend.
"What dreams may come, to each of us in dying light,
As we shut out reality and lay our heads down at night;
Will our minds fill with wonder and our hearts radiate beams,
Or will we forever remain tormented by the world outside our screens? "
Can't allow the world to control our life. Thank you Dooley for sharing the excellent poetry.

How do you rhyme it so flawlessly and beautifully. ? Just Fab, buddy!
I have read very many poems but this one is right there! you know right there!
Wonderfully done. It takes us on such a surreal trip of thoughts that you're left with nothing but to dig more and more meanings out of this as you read it every time. Thanks for sharing, enjoyed reading it !!!

This was a very deep and well written poem.
I can't believe your rhyming it is amazing, so flawless and brilliant.
This poem defiantly sounds so poetic due to the way its been written out like the repeating line:
What dreams may come...
Also the rhyming made it sound even more poetic.
I really enjoyed the read keep writing you are very talented.

Wow, Simply Amazing. It was simply poetic. There are very few poems that you would like to read again and again.This is surely one of the them. I am glad I read it. Third stanza is my favorite one.
Keep writing.
Amateur writers like me get inspiration from amazing writers like you.
