Poem -

Prance Unicorn, Prance

Prance Unicorn, Prance

Some dreams are never achieved
So they keep inside our sleep
Reminders in a kinder sight
Of the desires we hold deep

In brokenness, I confess
I conjure a fantasy
A winsome creature of grace
To live out dreams for me 

Prance unicorn, prance
Along the foamy shore
Advance in romance
Where I long to explore

Sunny days still amaze me
Flaunting hope in rays of gold
Kissing my cheeks with warm thoughts
Basking in attitudes bold

But nightfall beckons and calls
Flashing failure’s certainty 
Once again, I call my friend
To live for me, advertently 

Prance unicorn, prance
Along the frothy shore
Advance in romance
Where I long to explore

If I never get my chance
Then prance unicorn, prance

HI Greg.  Thank you.  I have had dreams of unicorns..and it inspired me to write my first book with one as the lead character.  Unicorns represent dreams and wishes we long to come true...The are hope, encouragement, and a spiritual sign. 

It is fine to tell me when you post a poem....I do miss many as I am not on here as much to comment.  I will read it....xo  Love n Hugs

Unicorns...a most magical mythical creature, such wistfulness and longing to this Cherie, that's what I feel from this poem. I'm always longing to...I don't know for what, it's not material stuff, just....longing. This is beautiful. 💕

Hi Marion...You are always so perceptive and sensitive to the emotions in my poetry and that longing is exactly the feel I was going for....to live through dreams for those missing elements in life we long for...and not materialistic things at all....but for the the emotional longings....and the unicorn representing the freedom to enjoy them.  Thanks, always, for your insightful comments that mean so much.  Love n Hugs, xo  ;)

It's not a fault, Jill...I think it is wonderful that you do not get writer's block and always find inspiration to write about...I am so tired sometimes that I cannot focus and I have to have a quiet time to think to write around my  house...lol  xo

Cheerie, 
Gorgeously sad, and longingly beautiful. You're a fantastic writer, young lady. 
Lovely use of the majestic unicorn to accent the beauty of the poem. 

' Sunny days still amaze me
Flaunting hope in rays of gold
Kissing my cheeks with warm thoughts
Basking in attitudes bold'

I love those gorgeous lines, such tantalizing warmth, I could just feel it. 

Another wonderful write, Cheerie. 
You're the best. 
Love and hugs, 
Matthew.

Hi dear Matthew!  ;)  Thank you, my friend.  I think unicorns are great representatives of hope and dreams and to show longing in dreams that seem out of reach...just like chasing the elusive unicorn that represents everything beautiful and desired.  I like it when you show me which lines speak to you....which is so helpful to see what connects with readers in my writing.  Thank you for that.  I think those are my favorite lines I wrote for this one too.  You always keep me motivated by believing in me and being so supportive.  Thank you!  xo Love n Hugs, ;)

Hey T!  I almost heard a song as I wrote this....and that is why I used the repetition like a chorus of a song....Thank you for recognizing always my romantic nature and why I always write with sentimental emotions...even when using a unicorn as a metaphor...lol..  I am glad you like my poetry...I am really enjoying writing.  Love n Hugs, xo C
