The Light In My Dream That Died Poem by Aqua Flower

The Light In My Dream That Died

Rating: 5.0

Let me grieve
this loss
this light of my dream
how can something so beautiful
cause so much sorrow
our yesterdays are gone
and that dream today
drifted away
I will not have the same dream tomorrow
let the residue of that essence disappear
you are no longer here
the air that use to bring me life
was poisoned by your words
words that cut like a knife
let me grieve this dream that died
and swallow the truth
that it was all a lie

An elegant sob of truth, feeling, sadness and despondency. A truly painful but elegantly written, very touching work.

Indeed, one has to swallow the bitter truth in life, this is very candidly and poignantly portrayed in this piece. Good read.

Sadly not all dreams come true. But on the demise of old new dreams are born. A very well expressed poem of life's sad and bitter losses.

Looking for a new dream. When you lose hope of a dream that will never come true, it's hard to let go. But life is full of so much that we can look to fill the void with a new dream.

False love - pain and disillusionment expressed so well in your poem.

Sometimes after pain comes a new horizon. It was time to let go of something that was nothing.
