Living In a Fantasy Of Dreams

Living In a Fantasy Of Dreams

A Poem by imagination101






















The sun rises as morning breaks

Ebullient waves of color paints the horizon

Sweet dreams of the night fades into nightmares of the day

Fairy god-mother sends her back into the cruel world,

where sadness tarnishs happiness,

and all that remains is another Cinderella day


Company of forlorness clothes her

Imagination materalizes a love affair

Intimate nights blossom on into the days

resurrection of love is found,

but when the clock strikes reality all that

remains is another Cinderella day


Servant of hatred

Slave to life

Poverty sparkles like diamonds to the rich

Satin dreams turn to a frivolous shine

All that is left is another Cinderella day


When the sun sets, and night falls

Mr. sand man visits

He sends her to a land of dreams,

where anything is possible

An imaginary man becomes prince charming

Hope opens like a spring-time flower

Cinderella is at peace


The  nights become a jamboree,

an invitation to be free

Until day light shines her fairy god-mother awakens

her to another Cinderella day

Sweet dreams of the night turn into nightmares of the day

So hauntingly bittersweet. Those dreams that carry us... that help us get through the darkness of days... yet they are unable to deliver us... Such a sad longing.

I want to compliment you how lifelike you can express this fairy tale, with beautiful contradictions. You make it "real" I am impressed, in awe... normally I find fairy tales teatrale and cliché, but how you give it a twist, oh my... you gave me goosebumps. sadly but so wonderfully penned!
