Shadow of A Dream


In the shadow of a dream
We lived.
We thrived.
And awoke in the sunrise of unspoken dreams
Throwing a challenge to the passing winds
We laughed.
We fought.
And found each other in the death of night.
Woken up in the silence of deafening thoughts
We kept quiet…
And heard the smile
Over the mute telephone line
And took comfort in the warmth of our embrace
Tentative were the faltering steps
Yet we found strength
To follow the elongating shadow
Of the setting sun

I live in the sparkling sunshine
Mesmerised by the beauty of my existence
Yet I miss the shadow…
Of the unexplored dreams…

The ridiculousness and deceive of this all surprises me.
Let's wake up once.
And for all.

I like the imagery....The sense of reality in words...the very choice of the human tendency to get washed away by emotions....the tendency to lose the radical n practical sometimes...Its subtle and nice...Keep writing

Nice ...but...not upto your usual styandard..I say this because ...I got this feeling that...the poem didn't get the entire thought out of you..there was something more that you wanted to say.....Nice job, though.... And a pleasant read, no doubt...The words were aptly and beautifully chosen......

Nice. But few phrases like 'sparkling sunshine' doesn't quite work for me... It tells me but doesn't really conjure up a vivid image...I hope you know what I am trying to say. I like the depth and the lurking gloom... Hope to read from you soon!
