The Dreams (Poem)

the_dreams_poem

What dreams are left when lovers say goodbye

What need is there of sweetness in a bloom

When there are no more songs to fill the sky

And even rainbows only promise gloom

-

What dreams would bless the shores of such a stream

Where memories replace a flower’s scent

While eyes disguise the sky’s new color scheme

And rainbows bring more reasons to repent

-

What dreams remain to understand the pain

From mindless storms which rip flowers apart

And leaves it to the sky to help explain

Why rainbows search for havens in a heart

-

I am that dream which wanders through that night

The other’s at her window by her light

This poem is very well written. It makes me kind of melancholy, but it does it in such a beautiful way.
