Treasure Island

Emma Wright

(1989 and going strong...lol / New South Wales, Australia)

I Dreamed.


I dreamed a dream and in that dream,
I dreamed that I had dreamed a dream,
Of hope and fairytales come true,
I dreamed a dream and thought of truth,
I dreamed a dream of life and love,
Of fate and angels and God above,
I dreamed a dream of good wishes and friends,
I dreamed a dream I dreaded to end,
But then I woke into my dream,
I dreamed I woke in a world obscene,
I dreamed a dream of violence and hate,
And once again I dreamed of fate,
I dreamed a dream of terror and fear,
I dreamed that each word went unheard,
And so children never spoke a word,
I dreamed a dream of demons and beasts,
I dreamed a dream that ended at last,
I woke in my bed and wondered if,
I dreamed a dream of dreams or if,
I dreamed a dream of truth that night,
And if so I wondered which was truth,
And which was merely a dream.

    Emma, I enjoyed this! Great theme and very lyrical, the first two lines are excellent. Just a suggestion but the last two lines might read better if you had said:
    And if so I wondered which was truth,
    And which was BUT a dream.
    Keep posting,

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
