A Poem by Ana B.

Afresh the Dream Fortress

Has cut the world in half…

One bathed in gentle softness

The other one - a sinter path.


Obstinate emptiness -

hauntingly familiar dismay…

Each tomorrow envious

Of the settled yesterday.


Floating salt photographs

Saying goodbye to a world,

Resting on the doorstep epitaphs,

Apricot morning undisturbed.


Unfitting in this world now

Like a laugh in the land of tears…

Got to cut a path anyhow

Through the forest of fears


Until the Dream Fortress

Will cut again.

Haha, no worries, use whatever you like from here :) Thank you.
each day looks back at the past....and wishes it could have been back then...
we don't learn, we seem to just regress...
and yes, dreams go both ways...one path good, and the other sinister...at least that is how i read that word in the 4th line...
i like the polarizing of this poem...leaves the reader to choose his or her own path.
