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Withdrawn.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.

haha, I feel you on the title issue :D as for this poem, it was... sad, yet beautiful... how often do we lay awake wishing for out love to be rekindled, to be mended after being broken so many times... how it hurts.. this openly shows the lost love, the sadness it leaves to be dealt with. I really enjoyed this poem.
