Pretend to Dream

Pretend to Dream

A Poem by Sbernie18

If you want to, I’ll shut off all the lights,

We can start to dream, but only if you want to.

You always knew the one place you had to look,

And you would always know you’d find me,

Behind the door looking for you this time.

Just this time.


We can always pretend and never stop dreaming,

Keep telling yourself the real worlds for fools,

And then slow it down and just stop to imagine.

That we’re the one who are really fooling,

And they’re the one who’d only ever care,

But just this time, maybe just this time.

 Maybe we can at least pretend.


No one has to know it can be just our secret,

What no one else knows won’t hurt them I guess.

But just this time and maybe just this night,

We can slow it down and take a moment,

To see the time trickle down and past us,

To see the earth shake and fracture,

Because just this time maybe just this time,

It’ll be different.

yes lets just this time,go on dreaming like a fool
or is it those who really live it ,or us ,who could tell
blow off the lights ,please stars and you deep blue sky
hide away our move..i want to feel my steps and not see
where i go,tired of looking too long,want to dream my way
know you could reach me in all the darkness,its how it feels
quite a secret to live smooth and light,and pretend like no time
yes lets change the rules ,least for one night,long still night,how different
what lovely write..

It's nice how we seem to do as we please in our dreams, but sucks how it can't be our own reality. You have a way with words and the flow was great. Enjoyed reading this,

This was touching indeed. I don't how to explain it.

Faintly unsettling, but with a great rhyme and flow. Clever use of words and structure. Good poem
