The Temptation of Dreams

I saw in your eyes
a blinding vision
a passion, a fire
a spark of desire
But nothing is
what it seems

The temptation
 of dreams
The final illusion

Trapped inside
a memory
I wish I could
make you see
make you feel
make it real

Darken my eyes
Set me free

  1. Much passion here, a wanting more than a memory, a wishing to be seen and set. A very yummy yearning! :)

  4. Ygraine,
    Thank you dear friend. But dreams are mere burrs that stick and cling to the subconscious like a seed on barren ground
    and no amount of sun or water will make them grow:)

  5. Wow, terrific one, Rose: the image, the gothic letter fountain and your words match perfectly.
    Dreams... humans need dreaming to survive reality and when dreams come true, new dreams are to come and go.
    A hug, dear Rose.
    :)
