Treasure Island

Linda Ori

(08/13/1945 / UTAH)


You wander through my dreams -
A ghost of a thought drifting in and out
Coloring my sleep with sunshine and shadow,
You fill my unconscious mind -
Every waking hour, every word I speak,
Every step I take is guided by your hand;
You're never far from me -
A memory creeps in and silently slips away
Taking my spirit along to a place in my dreams;
Why do you torture me?
My thoughts run circles around your face -
It's drowning me..........Get out of my mind!

    Really big questions! Short and sweet, still questions!
    I will keep reading to find some answers! (Report) Reply

    Yes, I like this poem. The image of your sleep being colored is particularly strong and it has that watery sub-conscious feel through the repetition and questioning. Very strong.
