Dreams of the future


I escape into my mind
While this world around me crumbles
My knuckles bloodied and my clothes stained
I close my eyes as my body rages
And see my self laying in a grassy area
Birds chirping and the sun shining on my face
I turn my head and eyes to look at the glassy surface of a lake
So quiet and serene in this world
A women lays next to me
I can't hear or see her clearly
She is a blur within this world
A dream is all this is
A way to avoid the pain and languish
I reach out to touch her
But she is like a ghost
Or am I the ghost
The pain rushes through and pulls me from my dream
Sitting in this cold room
My sobs and yells over
I just sit here and think
I talk to myself in hopes of encouragement
To pull myself out from this
To recover and rebuild

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
