I Dreamed of Love


I dreamed of love
but not like this –

a silent heart
a frozen kiss

vain conceit, deceit

words unmeant
passion spent.

~~~~~

I dreamed of love
the gentle kind –

sweet and true
to ease the mind

unmeasured, treasured

soft and pure
ever sure.

    a wonderful dream that is. I dream that one day if I'm lucky I'll meet the other half of me (Report) Reply

    In this fine piece are conflicted emotions but guided by love our enduring notion. (Report) Reply

    I love this poem.
    We all dream of love in its upmost form. We do find so many mean forms of 'love' that the love our dreams sometimes seems unreal. But we cannot give up. Love is real, love is wonderful. Keep believing, Val, keep dreaming. I keep trying unconcitional love myself. I only succeed in brief moments and it seems more of coincidences than something I really did. But we have to keep beleiving, Val, keep dreaming.

    What is love then Valerie? Did you dream of it quite differently than every one one us would?
    What is perfection is illogical as well. (Report) Reply

    Just like love on a hot afternoon, not what one would wish for. A startling revelation-bittersweet (Report) Reply

    Reminiscent of your earlier sonnet Speak Truly If You Deem To Speak Of Love wherein you wrote 'For truth should always be lovers tool'
    Another excellent poem (Report) Reply

    So very sweet a poem and tenderly touching. Dreams do come
    true if you wish it to be so. When it come only you will know. I
    really loved this one Val. Regards. (Report) Reply
