Courage is the magic that turns dreams into reality.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world go blind.


You close your eyes on the soft, heavenly fluff under your head;
Fall fast asleep.
Envision me.
Whether I’m angry or happy,
Nightmare or perfect dream
I’m there.
And then right when you get used to me,
Right when you could soak into this perfect me…
BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP.
You get up
I go away.
But then when I get lonely,
When the moon has risen and there’s no light left,
You come back and I appear.
And whenever you come back,
I will let you ride through fields of marigold,
Swim with the exotic fish of Poseidon,
Or fly with the golden winged creatures in a hidden palace.
And I will make sure your blood doesn’t spill,
And you don’t wake up sweating
Because then I wouldn’t be with you.
And then you wouldn’t be able to just dream.

This is so true. Right when im in the middle of an amazing dream i always wake up right before the best part is about to happen.

This poem gives me the images of the places it is at in my head with such detail. I feel like I am in a dream floating around seeing all of this. This poem was really vivid and imaginative, I really liked it.

I read this again for the first time in about a year and I appreciate it even more. The ending sentences are really great and I love your use of vivid words (Ex: marigold...)to help us envision the dream. This has been marked exceptional by the ediorial staff, huh? On the way to a publishing I hope!
