Hazy Dreams - Poem by Alice Cuenca

Words cast shadows,
the breeze carries it and
lingering almost feeling
your presence...
my heart stretches like gossamer webs,
we bridge over...
distance has no meaning.

Words form an image of you
words that consume...
envelop me like in darkness
sleepless...
its shadows unspoken but felt
what's the use of daylight?
when my eyes are blocked
with the thought of you...

Short sleep- hazy dreams
have no colors.
I envision the water...
transparent, limpid, shadowless

I am a leaf on a pond
the sky submerged
look down! against the sky I am flying
in a topsy-turvy world

To fly
is not an option...
as much as I wanted,

seeing you is not an option...

    very well expressed
    and i like the fact that words flow from the quill of your mind
    and fill the pages of the readers heart leaving behind an indelible mark.

    Hi Candice, thanks for pointing me in the direction of this beautiful poem about love. These lines did it for me the most.

    'my heart stretches like gossamer webs,
    we bridge over...
    distance has no meaning.'

    Because such love has no boundaries. You describe with vivid imagery how two souls can be joined no matter the distance, even death has no boundaries in he wake of such a love. Great work.

    Smiling at you, knowing exactl what you are saying here, and it is true, so true.

    Tai

    Candy sweet honey words flowing here from the first line to the last: 'Words cast shadows,
    the breeze carries it and
    lingering almost feeling...'

    Wonderful imagery. Your poem is wrought with such feeling it is palatable. Excellently done. I particularly love this:

    I am a leaf on a pond
    the sky submerged
    look down! against the sky I am flying
    in a topsy-turvy world

    As good as it gets - Stone
