U are beside me

U are beside me

A Poem by *~Kristy~*

Shadows of memory creep upon the pallid ashen skies,
They cast their sinister silhouettes upon our secluded skin,
Their icy touch as bitter and prevailing as the eager fingers of death,
But they shall not feast upon our innocent flesh tonight.

“This is only a dream,” you murmur to me,
I know that you are right, but I dare not acknowledge the reality.
“I’d rather pretend that you are with me,” I whisper back.
“Even in this desolate darkness?” You ask, warily.

My hand reaches up, slowly but silently,
And rests upon your cold sunken sallow skin,
You are readily suffering here inside my dream,
My mind is broken, but here you remain.

Your heartbeat echoes and reverberates around me,
Matches with mine evenly,
Racing due to our skins’ powerful electric touch,
And I smile happily and say:

“The darkness isn’t so desolate,
Whenever you are by my side.”

I like the feel and the emotion of this poem. Started with strong lines and then led me into the sadness of love gain and lost. I like the ending. I love your poetry. Needs to be read a few times to truly enjoy the complete poem. A excellent poem.

This is incredible, insane! It flows so well. You just read through it so fast and you wonder where the rest of it went. Well done.

I thought this was going to be a really dark piece, but it was truly touching at the end, and the piece as a whole flowed so easily. Great right. Love the last two lines.

what started as a sort of creepy write turned into a heartfelt one .. its amazing how we never stop imagining our loved ones near one in our dreams when we just can't have them around .. the ending says it all

"The darkness isn’t so desolate,
Whenever you are by my side." -- how so true ....
