Dream

A Poem by Adam M. Snow
"

I dream of her, and then I sever; I dream of her now and forever. Wrung ye not of dreams be seen, Joyous past of hope between.

Dream
By: Adam M. Snow

 

I dream of her, and then I sever;

I dream of her now and forever.

Wrung ye not of dreams be seen,

Joyous past of hope between.

 

Misery held but a fiend, but a fiend;

Vision of her but a dream, but a dream.

But do I see her now or never;

Dream of her now and forever.

 

Dark despair around benights me;

Dreams of her, bestowed upon me.

Ne'er the day nor twilight fall;

One poise adjourned for all-

A dream to come tomorrow's pass,

Each heavier than the last.

 

I dream of her, and then I sever;

I dream of her now and forever.

Wrung ye not of dreams be seen,

Joyous past of hope between.

 

Alas! Misery held but a fiend, but a fiend;

Vision of her but a dream, but a dream.

Arose ye not a dream to wander,

A vision of her going yonder.

 

Dark despair around benights me;

Dreams of her, bestowed upon me.

Ev'ry dream it be of her;

Dream of her now and forever.

Very nice inspiration, Robert Burns is really well. As is your poem here, i really liked this and its flow... i tend to agree with Misty Blue Eyes, at least the instrumental part of my song seems to be nice notes to the words here haha. Nice flow n write, i love the words.

Lovely and sweet yet a little dark! Love it!

I like the way you wrote this. And the repeating phrase, though I normally despise those, fit very well into this piece.

Not my flavor but none the less a very well written piece...

I felt for this, from the way its structured to what you're actually saying. Its stunning and has a slight rhythm to it, which draws the reader in... very well done. You also write as though you were that of a professional, and I can see that you write with confidence... this also rubs onto the reader, we are more confident to believe what you have written.

So very beautiful. Keep up the great work!

The repetition of this was sublime, the phrasing more than overcame some of the cliche elements. Besides, what is prettier than a dream.

I am literally in love with this poem. The name catches my attention, and the words you have written stay etched in my mind. Very great job. Can't wait to read more of your poems. ^^

Amazing just the like rest of your poems, i love the way you write. A very 1800's feel. And for some reason, it made me think of the poem "A dream within a dream" By Edgar allen poe.

I like this poem. A dark feel to the desire. Sometime desire that was once sweet can turn black with darkness.
"Misery held but a fiend, but a fiend;
Vision of her but a dream, but a dream.
But do I see her now or never;
Dream of her now and forever."
I like the ending to the outstanding poem.
