Dreamland Perish

Dreamland Perish

A Poem by Alicia Hirshey



Dream-scape euphoria

Held tight in my head
Childhood visions
Refuse to bring death
Innocent days
Life was so sweet
Whatever happened
To those days
When childhood leaves
~*~
Taper longing
Easier ways
Butterfly magic
Slowly decays
Hang on to the thread
As the rhythm fade tight
Dream away the longing
Hold it into the night
~*~
Childish tendencies
I claim to hold near
The world is so simple
Through the longing and despair
~*~
Each dream hold a door
A prize behind each
Which will you open?
What will your mind
Let you see?
A beautiful princess?
A house made of stone?
Family and loved ones?
You have let go?
~*~
Play make believe
In the yard
Out back
Hold on to something
You long to get make
Imagine yourself
What you claim to be
Life is beautiful
Look and you will see.

'What will your mind let you see?'

Very wonderful poem! I really, really loved it. It seemed different from your others ones, but I'm not sure why I think that. The last verse is superb.

Time flies by and nothing is the same, once innocent now corrupted, its a shame nowdays kids grow up to fast, innocence is a gift.
Very well said and done...

kids r weird in the eyes of the old they have imaginary friends and play to be old, this poem makes me think and wonder at what time we changed and became us when we changed how we saw the world

I love to remember those days of being a child and pull that memory through my heart and still live that youthful dream in my adult days...xo so I never forget the simple things.. the things that use to really make me go ahh...and stop breathing for just a moment while in awe...
Love this..xx
