Longing in Dreams

Longing in Dreams

A Poem by Anima Inspired

 

I see you clearly
despite the haze of my dreams,
a form shrouded in mist;
silver streaked moonlight pouring
like liquid through your hair.
 
Every electrical impulse of my being
is tuned to your frequency, until
my heart is racing in time with your breath
as I reach for you with hands
that know too well the weight of emptiness.
 
Like starlight you shimmer, dancing
just beyond my grasp, until I am
no longer sure of your position,
and the terrible flutter of uncertainty
spills upward from the pit of my chest
to the core of my haunted mind.

A lucky man to find his way into your dreams. =)

I like the way that you wrote about seeing the man clearly even through hazy visions and with mist shrouding over the figure of the man. I think it successfully conveys the symbolism between knowing someone, but not completely knowing them, and the grasping of your hands and the uncertainty that comes at the end seems to be another version of that duality between knowing and not knowing. I think this is a very powerful poem in terms of symbolism and, of course, imagery.

Another brilliant piece. =)

Whispers of a lover in a dream or a long forgotten soul.

this is what I'm talking about when I say you have long been one of my favorites...

I loved Sweet Obsession too. This poem taps so close to the core of the project I am working on. The silver streaked hair in moonlight...the electrical impulses, the empty reaching. So on pitch. Let's talk about this piece, okay?

Regards,

Fade to black! Like a dream that's there and then almost gone. This flows.

Somebody got wet, but it wasn't me...hehe. Not bad. The strength of this piece in my opinion is the rhyme scheme. But when it comes to longing in dreams penned by you Anima, I expect to get dreamily wet too...from sweat of course. ;-)
