Time



you were in my dreams
but then i awoke

you knew,
even there,
in my subconscious
our time would go too quickly
time of which we never had
stopped
in our togetherness
relinquishing
the power
subdued
in the name of love
at times mercy
it would never be
tick tock
my heart thumps

so quickly...
forever ends

  4. I actually had a dream exactly as you have described, it was after my husband passed and he was in, it was so real and when I awoke my heart was pounding and I threw myself into the pillow and comforter trying to keep his scent with me.....to this day, many years later that dream is so real to me.....I love your poem and your descritptions, absolutely loved it. Have a wonderful day....:-) Hugs

  7. Dreams within Dreams

    They are circles we can revisit over and over again.

    We can re-experience love in all its forms.

  10. The end and the dreams that haunt us...sometimes the sadness feels unbearable, but then comes a new dream, a new love, a new and better life. The journey from one to the next is the hard part.

    Beautifully written. Your work is always so inspiring, Kay! Thank you again :)

    Have a Beautiful Day!

  12. I had a dream a co-worker (yeah, ok, he is mighty fine and prone to flirt) needed comfort and laid his head in my lap as I stroked his hair. Damn if that alarm didn't freakin' end it all. *sigh*

  13. Dreams that end too quickly always leave me with a yucky feeling in my heart. That was very quiet. Nice!

  14. Aren't the best, most intense romances live in our dreams? Only to end suddenly without warning leaving us feeling unfulfilled. If only they could transcend into reality. Lovely picture, goes well with your poetry.

  19. Love in the woods is like sneaking away from a picnic for stollen moments and peaked learning of mutual desires and restless yearning to last a lifetime in reflection but perhaps never to be repeated together again.
