A Poem by joshua deathdealer

"

Untouched rose petals float on the winds of your dream,
leisurely flowing towards the burning center of this mirage, 
clouds carry my hopes away across what remains of your sky.

Disintegrating rays of sunshine brighten my face as your apparition
descends to lay beside me upon our berth of spoken promises,
my aspiring hands reach to mend the cracks in your silvery skin.

Familiar conversations replay in gentler tones, while we hold
dearly onto reflections that time is so eager to eat away.

Shouts and cries cut through your lingering intoxicating scent as
they shake me in effort to wake me from these generated scenes
out of fear that I may never be able to return to harsh reality. 

I have wandered aimlessly though the brightly painted fields,
sailed the raging oceans detailed on the pages of your heart
and here in the comfort of your soothing memories, I will stay.

A beautiful and tragic poem, sometimes certian memories bring us comfort so we linger in them, but we much not get stuck in them unable to get out for we loose sight of reality that way. However sometimes maybe it is better to stay in those memories if the reality is hell. Maybe being a little insane in that way could be bliss?

Incredible.. So in love with this last line- "I have wandered aimlessly though the brightly painted fields, sailed the raging oceans detailed on the pages of your heart and here in the comfort of your soothing memories, I will stay."

I'm really digging your writing style. The way you describe things is really remarkable. The feel, too, is familiar.
