Dreams - Poem by Jim Milks

To sleep to sleep perchance to dream,
so begins that famous poem
a fitting place to start my tome
dreams of longing, dreams I fear
dreams of someone that is so dear
in sleep I rest my weary head,
in sleep I dream the dreams I dread
dreams of longing, dreams of needing and belonging
peaceful night is no more
the shattered dreams are at my door
banging clanging they clamor for entrance
twisting turning I deny them admittance
the shattered dreams lurk outside my door
I twist and turn till they are no more
lying still I do lament
another nights energy has been spent
