When I Dream

When I Dream

A Poem by Orahemae December


When I dream, I dream of you
Holding me ever so close
As each day goes by my feelings are repressed
One day they won’t even show
When I sleep I listen to songs
They remind me of what we had
Every day I think of you and ponder
Ponder what went bad
How on earth am I suppose to move on
Forgetting the moments we shared
Going on laughing with out you
To me it doesn’t seem fair
Why must I go through this pain everyday
Hiding feelings I’ve always felt
Lying in bed with my sleepless nights tears
Crying for the card been dealt
How I feel inside’s a mystery
No one really knows
When I dream, I’ll still dream of you
Holding me ever so close

Great expression of love and love loss. Like the way the title is summed up in the ending lines. Thanks for entering the Missing Him, Missing Her contest.

Beautiful poem. The tone works brilliantly with the subject matter to create the feeling of saddened nostalgia. You did very well creating said atmosphere in the poem. The lack of punctuation is interesting, giving the poem the feeling of ideas running together in one great surge of emotion and memory and reaction. Very well done!
