Give Me Something to Dream About

Give Me Something to Dream About

A Poem by Dawn Jones

Give me something to dream about
A sweet temptation I can turn around
Inside my head
A confection of the heart
That starts out sweet
And turns out tart
Fabricated hallucinations 
Of the vaporous affections
Born of the perfect match
Every little girl's secret wish
To have a boy to be her prince
And rescue her from her self-created tower
A dream that lasts but a single night
And is gone by the morning's light
To be renewed the next night's impending sleep
Give me something to dream about
A sweet temptation I can turn around
Inside my head
And let her be the perfect match to me.

Truly beautiful, dear Dawnie. Great write!

A confection of the heart
That starts out sweet
And turns out tart --- bittersweet, such is life.

Fabricated hallucinations
Of the vaporous affections
Born of the perfect match --- vaporous affections, yes, they do seem that way at times, don't they?

A confection of the heart
That starts out sweet
And turns out tart

This is beautiful...and serene and has great images...I imagine you waiting for a princess to climb your tower, but not today - today is for you...and you'll focus on that because you are strong and you are smart...fairy tales aren't for everyone...this is lovely.

Isn't that always the way it goes when we open our eyes? Nicely penned.

This is a fabulous piece fashioned of the finest Dream material and portrays a sense of longing that one cannot help but be moved by it. You made a particular point of displaying just how fantasies may be better than the realities. Something I think we all have experience with. Sensational writing, as usual.

I always enjoy your work, this is no exception. Its hard to be single when you don't want to be. Feels like you're missing something, when really... whatever you feel is missing has been inside you all the time.

I like it! :) the words you chose to write it really help me see what your talking about :) Very well done (as usual ofcourse :P ) Dawnie :) Is it named after the song out of BTVS by any chance or is that just coincidence?
