Your Shadow - Poem by Alison Mary Dunn

Can’t make the dreaming stop
It spells the truth out right
For in the cold of night
I wish your shadow to return

Each captivating form
that danced in hidden doors
When boredom stalked my mind
Our shadows tricked the moon

Where dreaming haunts my soul
Your touch is ever present
I always reach for you
Though I’m afraid of shadows

And oh God how I love you
Though I could tell you not
Now you may never know
Unless your shadow should return.........

    How terrible it would be not to have those dreams that fall like shadows
    on the soul. An eloquent write. Ten, of course.

    Warmest regards,

    Sandra

    You share your regret with openness and a natural feel for rhythm in this poem about lost love. You're right. The shadows of memory seem to take for ever to be released. Perhaps this poem will hasten the process and allow you to open a new door. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
