Dream

November 21, 2013
My true love is stuck in my dreams.

Why can he not escape?

He paces back and forth

Night after night.

Yet never calls my name?

What a cruel fate this is!

How can it be?

That I see my lover,
Yet he never sees me?

This is something I read over and over again.  I enjoy a poem that makes me do that in order to capture its meaning and answer the questions you ask.  Great work!

I love the mood and atmosphere of the poem! Very lonely and dark. I love the shortness and simplicity, which makes the poem's message powerful and deep! Great job

Me too! I love this, you can create a wall of a story though austere words. Keep writing and never doubt what you should show to the public
