My Love, My Sweetest Dream - Poem by Jessel Jane Tevar Toring

I dreamed of owning
a mind I could not own.
As dream be dream,
I know I'd wake up all alone.
My sweetest dream,
you'll be a painful memory...
yet I cling to thee,
though hope be blind,
as thou not be misery.

I dreamed of loving
a heart I could not love.
As dream be dream,
I know I couldn't have.
My sweetest dream,
you'll be a dreadful history.
Yet I crave for thee,
though hope be blind,
to linger here with me.

My love, my sweetest dream,
you'll be a grievous melody
I never want to sing.
As dream be dream,
oh pain it brings!
to ever wake from thee.

    Is it the dream itself, of love in the dream or the person in the dream? What a romantic write. (Report)Reply
