As If I Am Your Dream - Poem by David Kowalczyk

Here, in the warm white fog,
our smiles contain miracles,
miracles only an ancient love
could ever manifest.

My blood turns to wine.
The edges of shadow harden.
Time fills with tears.

Let us surrender
the sky we stole
from the gods.

    Nicely done. Where do we separate our fantasy from reality, and which do we prefer to live in. In the realm of the Romantics with this piece. (Report) Reply

    There is a marked element of mysticism here, which coupled with a string of beautiful words casts a spell on the reader. I quote a few lines: Time fills with tears /...Let us surrender / the sky we stole / from the gods. (Report) Reply
