bProvoking the Restless Dreamer/b

…I dream of more
Then all of this pain and destruction we hold
I dream of more…

I need a reason to survive
A reason to stay alive
It’s so hard to stay on top of things
‘Crash down’ please destroy my dreams

Because I dream of more
Then all of this
I dream of more then the
pain and destruction we hold
I dream of a time that won’t exist
I dream that we have souls
That we have souls…

I’ve seen it all in your eyes
I’ve seen your tears and heard you cry
I don’t want a part in all of this
Why do we run and flee from Your kiss?

Now I dream of more
Then all of this
I dream of more then the
pain and destruction we hold
I dream of a time that won’t exist
I dream that we have souls

That we have souls
Save me now
Save me from myself
I’m wearing
Wearing myself out
And I’m falling behind
My heart beats fast and
My body’s numb
I can’t survive like this
Now black is the sun

And I have always dreamed

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
