A Poem by Brea

IN DREAMS


I dreamed of you.

Before we met I knew

That somehow, some way,

You were mine.

Through foggy, disjointed

Sleeping images

Your hand touched mine

And I felt the heat.

There was love and there was light

And I could not wait to give myself

To the darkness.

For that was when we were together.

Then I met you and for once I understood

That dreams became reality.

Your hand touched mine

And I felt the heat.

You were my boldest desire,

My greatest shame.

Now I truly understand

That dreams lie.

I loved this. Very bittersweet.

[Slap!] The sound of real life, especially in youth, that teaches that reality and realty with self are the best avenues of knowledge to the mind as soul/spirit teaches of deeper AND higher learning. Dreams, at best, are warnings and wonders, and at worst...wishes of our core (not that that's a bad thing to do).
Thanks for the powerfully-written 100/100 piece.

You are too kind! Thank you
Kinda very passionate write you come up with. The dreams, your very love fairies be well filtered in love words. Enjoyable to read. Sensual. Loving. And sorta romantic write. Not a bad shot. Keep it up!

Nice swerve at the end... it short circuits the brain for a moment to make you ponder all that was said before. Keen move well played!

I agree.
"Now I truly understand
That dreams lie."
Deja vu is trickery. Sweet dreams don't lead to perfect place. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

This is such a beautiful poem. I really love the way you entwined words such as "foggy" and "disjointed" to create a very clear picture. You're poem is so beautiful!

Oh, I didn't expect that ending. :(
So sad when the one we dream about disappoints us on such a large scale.
