Midnight Musings

These dreams I dream of you,
So primal, these apparitions of raw emotion.
I witness myself, a parent to the child.
Who am I to have such dreams?
Who are you, to still be so distant, yet so close?

Indeed, my humanity must overcome, alone.
Trials of the mind, wavering spirit,
A singing lark flying through a deafening storm.
To be torn asunder, or to find shelter in great winds?
A question of who I was to you,
Followed closely by who I was to myself.

I swing wildly into the darkness, the unknown,
I strike at what lies under the floorboards of my mind.
Blinded, I see.
Sighted, I am blinded.
Sleepless, she does leaves me,
Repeating, again and again…
Until sincerity unites thought and memory.

As I look upon the streams of moonlight,
I know that you may be watching as well.
Scattered promises littered that floor,
Humiliation, our childish lack of understanding.
Having thrown so much away,
This oddity was one worth keeping.
Through my midnight musings,
Love and forgiveness is all that is left.

  1. Hi
    Thank you. I am happy to see your wonderful post. It gives me a thoughtful thinking and am  happy for that. That is always my intention to see a post that gives me happiness.

    This is just a little contribution to this post.

    Dreams are very different from waking life, but it is extremely difficult clearly to define in what the difference consists. When we are dreaming, we are nearly always convinced that we are awake, and in some cases real experiences have been mistaken for dreams.

    Sometimes even after waking, we may be doubtful whether our dream was a reality or not, especially if we happen to fall asleep in our chair and do not remember the circumstance of having fallen to sleep. 

    Sometimes dreamers do have feeling of wonder at their strange experiences. 

    Am happy  to share at least a part of that happiness and love here as am commenting now.



    Peace ✌and Love ❤
