Dreams and Nightmares

Take me to that place

the shelter from this storm

Gratitude mimics need as I try to find space

 

Somewhere in the mist my walk becomes a chase

I search for you by the pine and pebbles as my thoughts swarm

Take me to that place

 

I lose my breath as bells chime and my heart keeps pace

Wilted petals dropped by the shore, I sigh as landscapes transform

Gratitude mimics need as I try to find space

 

The sky begins to clear as our history I retrace

back to the days when we were content not to conform

Take me to that place

 

Wanting what I can’t have, such is the case

This wayward soul can not reform

Gratitude mimics need as I try to find space

 

In my final hours, I see your face

Breathtaking visions dance and form

Take me to that place

Gratitude mimics need as I fill this empty space

  1. As I was reading, I couldn’t help but think how much more poetic yours is compared to mine. Well done on the description of the world around as the relationship evolves, or the memories do.

    The twist at the end works well.
    Brava!

      1. I didn’t say my words were not worthy too, just that yours are more poetic 😄
        We all write how and what we need to. That’s one of the things I like about this challenge, is sharing each other’s work 😊
