At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.


His body moving swiftly
to the dance of life,
he grabs my hand and pulls me in
making me a part.
I feel the rush of his skin
as he dances so swiftly.
I feel confused and get lost
in his tornado of truth.
I see everything: his past
and his present
and accept him for who he is.
Who he is, is not what he has done
and our love is stronger
than that held with chains.
Passion.
That's what flows between us
as we dance this dance
of love and hope.
A dream.
As I awaken, I realize
that is all it was.

The author's comments:
I fell asleep one night after finding out my boyfriends secrets and personal struggles and dreamt of us dancing in a tornado which displayed images of all he had been through and I found tht symbolic of the ups, downs, and spin arounds of his life.

Sure I'd love to! Thanks by the way and I'm glad you make sense of the way dreams affect reality and vice versa.

Wow that is amazing. It's funny how dreams can try and make sense of our reality. Would you mind reading my poem A Pink Watch, Portal, and Perpetual Sea and telling me what you think? Thank you
