The Dreamer and his Memories

You came from the shadows…
Unencumbered…free…
You dreamed…you spoke…
And, showed us pictures…that seeped deep within

You refused the road oft taken
Fought, bloody wars…
And, then danced in the rapture of creation…
Because, only you could

Each frame a story…
Each idea a rebellion…
You carried difference with elegance
And, now you’re gone

So here’s to the lonely verandah…
Here’s to the untouched coffee & half-burnt cigarettes
You were a dreamer…

But, you were not alone…

He will never die. His work will never let him die. By taking the untaken road, he showed us that we also need to venture out, stop being scared. Break free dogmas.
Well written. Prompt, straight, sensible.

I too am that dreamer. I have shared only my truth yet my dreams turn into nightmares. But I have learned to live. With me.
