I dream of you

I dream of you

A Poem by lawrence bear
"

A struggle I give into

"


Last night

I dreamed of you.

 

My heart

It ached.

How I yearn

For your affection.

 

A flame

That once

Blazed.

Now lay

Smouldering,

I try

To stir

And rekindle

To no avail.

 

I am invisible,

Withdrawn.

Like,

I no longer exist.

Cast away

I am adrift.

 

On the ocean

Of

Your heart.

Battling

A raging sea,

Fighting to stay

Afloat.

 

I reach for

Your hand.

Slowly

Slipping

Its grasp.

 

My sails

Have torn,

No paddle,

No life jacket.

I am losing,

Hope.

 

The waves

Overcome me

I drown

In the emptiness

Of your heart.

Lost

Forgotten maybe

I will

Never know.

I am dead

I lost

My soul.

 

Into

The abyss

I go,

A struggle

I give into.

 

The darkness

Welcomes me,

My body

My soul

Slowly fading

Away.

 

Last night

I dreamed of you.

Beautiful and sad. Love can be wonderful but the heartbreak that follows can be so cruel.

You are very welcome. :)
A sad journey in the poem. Old memories can make us sink into old hope and dreams. I like the flow of thoughts leading to the hopeful endings in dreams. Thank you my friend for sharing the outstanding poetry.

It is our subconscious that holds the hidden desires that we all lament

The formatting really gives an insight to your feeling of disconnect and loss. The hopelessness is apparent as is the suffering. This is one of the only works done by another person that I could see myself having written, thank you for sharing it.
