Big Dreams, Short Nights - Poem by Xelam Kan

My heart can't listen
my loudest mind,
as in solitude
I create a fairy-land,
but fail to escape
the hell around.
Oh! my big dreams
in such short nights
making me dying before i fully born...

I'm not poor in vision but
my fancies are clipped,
to kiss
her icy lips and swollen breasts
after she has gone.
And one day She will say,
I'm looking completely insane
to seek the hue
of rainbows
in the falling rains.

Topic(s) of this poem: love, love and dreams

This is my 100th poem, and is my dream too...to see rainbow in the falling rain and kiss her when she's gone. Ahh insanity!

    Wow... this is a lovely read. I love the natural flow of your thoughts. Big dreams, short nights...so meaningful. Life is too short to fulfill all our dreams. The touch of romance in the poem is very refreshing. (Report)Reply
