The Dream Was Dead

The Dream Was Dead

A Poem by XxWhatsername86

The dream passed away in silence...

With gravity eyes that clenched the moon.

For all who would see her that dusk,

In darkness fell their shying swoon.

I swore the dream was dead that hour.

And swore more that she would never return.

This requiem of imagination...

Would never let its fires burn.

But then there came a chillest voice...

From darkest waters, from black, murky tarn.

And the portrait of my soulless window...

Saw coldness in the eyes redrawn.

For I had thought this dream was dead...

But no, amazing...

The dream survived.

For my soul slept long enough to wither...

And dream that it had only died.
