Dreams

From the folds of morning's curtain
Are born my dreams that strive to be
And tho nothing is for certain
They're who I am, they're driving me.

These dreams won't stir the heart of kings
Or feed the flames of destiny;
They flicker true and dance within
My heart and soul, they comfort me.

As daylight yields to inky night
And all the busy sounds are hushed;
My tired dreams give up their fight
As in the darkness they are crushed.

As daylight yields to inky night
 

My favorite line, I find the ending a bit hopeless, having your dreams crushed.... Dreams sometimes allows us to live in another realm free from the pain and sorrow of reality...

You are doing an excellent job on leaving behind reviews, I admire that 😊

Thankyou for your comments. It was a bit of a hopeless poem, I totally agree. 

I love reading everyone else's poetry. I find it's food for the soul. And if I find a particular poem has stirred anything in me, I like to leave a comment.

Hi Tina,

As promised, my poetic comment.

At dawn's early light, with the sun streaming in
Her dreams for the day, then hopeful begin
They are humble and true, and filled with no greed
For they encompass the Earth, and all of it's needs

.
But early in eve, with the light growing dim
Mother Nature's still crying, because of man's whims
Another day passes, without dreams coming true
But she'll try every morning, for her hopes to ensue

Hugs, Peace and Love,
Larry xxx

This really hit with the line "in darkness they are crushed" as I now hate to turn out the lights until I am so exhausted that I start to hallucinate.
Turning the light off allows the monsters under the bed to become more than a silly childhood fear.
Excellent write, well deserved nomination. xo

Hi Tina, firstly congratulations on your nomination- very, very well deserved! This is an absolutely captivating piece of work- I love the fluidity of it and how it so clearly relates a tale. Sounds a bit weird but this is a style I can understand so well it feels almost as though I could have written it and would have been very proud if I had!! Well done !!

Thank you Lodigiana. I had worried that this little poem was a bit weak. But maybe that is what is so lovely about poetry, it speaks differently to different hearts. I appreciate the feedback. Thankyou for reading.
