    The Dream of my Dreams

    I kissed goodbye the dream of my dreams
    Shallow
    …mean(ingless) things
    Where scenes of Love-broken hearts confess
    Their fame
    Of losing happiness

    I’ve seen the light
    …Enjoyed the sight of evening’s sunset across ocean’s might
    Yet, I squandered the night
    Nurtured my pain
    Paid homage to break-ups’ most tragic reign

    I scream
    Indifference…At their Whore-intensive foray
    Of wholly-intrusive wordplay
    But didn’t know what to say

    It was a dream

    A fantasy of beautiful things
    Where romance blossoms
    And happiness screams
    Its depths
    To
    Thee
    And, yet
    Tomorrow’s sunrise
    Brings with it fresh eyes
    (Not necessarily of the wise)

    ~ I kissed my dreams goodbye

    I kissed shadowy dreams
    (Of sordid…and morbid things)
    As I slid in between the whispering hollows
    A “sorrow-filled” tomorrow devoid of dreams

    I came…

    Not from penile stimulation
    Or sexual motivations
    But from the mental manipulations of love

    I kissed goodbye the dream of my dreams
    All I’ve ever dreamt of

    Are dreams really real or realistically for only the dreamer to make real!
    Loved every word!
    Had Me in dream land a forest of tree's making a path to our village that We share and have built to be ours and theirs!
