Lost Dream - Poem by Mugano S. Paul


Love. Years ago I had a dream,
In this dream,
I dreamt about life and love,
I took it so serious.

Empty. Now, I sit to hunt my dream,
But nothing comes to mind.
My inspiration left me,
No passion left to find.

Cut. Blank pages stare back at me,
My treasured dream,
Seems to have gone:
No path,
No depth, No heights,
No widths…
No song, No words.

Tears. If I had tears,
I’d cry the loss of my dream
But the pain has eaten them all.

Vacuum. The dream has been taken
To a place that doesn’t exist,

Dream. But when I dream again,
The passion will be rekindled,
and will begin to flow,
The peace-divine will over-flood…
