Dream


I had a dream
Of happiness
Of bliss
with you
and now
I know
those words
were truly
undoubtedly
empty
ringing hollow
with no real meaning
meant to keep me
on a leash
to you
to deception
a malice
supreme in its order
has ripped me
my very being
to shreds
terrorized my heart
betwixt these evils
abominations
I loved
caught
as a fish in a net
I love
I simply cannot love any more
for you
I would burn
even now
as your mirrors are broken
and the smoke has cleared
for I
would hand you the match
because now
that my hope
is gone
lost
have no reason
even though there is a reason
no one to dream of
to pine for
the dreams of this year
are all for naught
my fears have held true
you
are full
of empty words
meaningless promises
and have sated yourself
on the lifeblood
that once pumped through my veins
Oh woe
my hopes
gone
for you
again
it is all for you
gone
because of
you
my dream
hope
envisages scattered and dying
for you

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
