A Dream Space… #Poetry

A Dream Space

Inside time there is a dream space
Never has there been a time like now
For dreams to come true
Afraid to sleep, don’t be
Memories fade into shadows
Often repeated in a new life
Under warm covers, you must dream it first
So that you can be reborn...

Can You Hear Her… #Poetry

Can you hear her crying late at night?
Over the loud music, I hear her tears
You and I watch as she carries her pain
Nothing we do can change the beat of time
Tomorrow, the clouds remain dark, full of tears
Down the rabbit hole, the music has a merry beat
Over the river, sits the King on his throne
Waiting to greet new visitors to carry their tears
Evening starlight removes her pain
Never again, would her tears last through the night…

Will we meet again
When I’m dreaming
My heart beats loud
Like the ocean
Rushing to shore
Searching for you
Are you dreaming
Waiting for me
Hold the dark nights
I’m on my way
Will we meet again?

Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie ~ Wordle #282 ~ #Poetry ~ #A Strange Friendship





Softly, she hunts under an overcast sky
followed by a bald badger
The same pattern each night
The first star dots the sky
The large ginger cat sits by the open window
Beside him, his mistress leaves her milkshake
No fangs needed, so he takes advantage
Whiskers cleaned, he leaves 
through the open window
To follow behind badger
through leafy lanes, 
they march on into the night
A strange friendship, that works
and needs no communication…

Yesterday’s Dream… #Poetry

Image by Kate Cox from Pixabay 

Mouth full of words with nothing to say
Empty promises that should never have been made
Tie them all together, what have you got, nothing
After a lifetime of dreaming, there’s a red flag
Perhaps I should have turned around and started again
Have one dream at a time, make it come true
Yesterdays dream was one of the best I ever had
Sitting at my piano, hands poised I freeze
Inside my mind, I am playing, note perfect
Concert hall full of people, seated in silence
Applause, loud in my ear for the music in my mind
Like I said, one dream at a time…

Serving Time… #Poetry

Serving time, counting pennies
Under the thumb, head bowed
Ridden hard by the masters
Valleys run deep with pain
Every man, woman and child has the mark
In their hearts they are free
Love is more than they can hope for
Love is the hidden desire waiting
All wait to be kissed by those lips
Nights would be less lonely
Changes blossom in the strangest of places
Every man shall have his day…

The Sunday Whirl ~ Wordle 365 ~ #Poetry

©AnitaDawes2022 ~ image by Pixabay.com
The power shot past me
The sacred moment lost
I lie under the covers
A heavy ache held my heart
I hear the owl in the woods
The hollow crack of spirit
The candle lit, the feast ready
The sideways glance, the door opens
Yesterday’s spirits rush in…

Falling… #Poetry

Image by Simon from Pixabay ~ Poem by A Dawes

Falling out of love I find
Opportunities I thought lost
Understanding what to do, however
Nothing I could think of helps
Drowning is how I felt
Always the same feelings repeated
Too late, you lost me
In moonlight I sleep
On wings of white I fly late at night
Nearer to you, before we fall out of love…

Another wonderfully sad, heartbreaking poem from Anita!

She Sings… #Poetry

Under purple skies, she sits, she sings
Low winds carry her voice, her echo
Tomorrow tells yesterday’s old stories
Impossible dreams crushed like broken glass
Memories claw like branches
      on the bedroom window pane
Alerting the sleeping mind to horrors outside
Tomorrows nightmares arrive early
Entering the subconscious, they grow,
      Slowly waiting for the day they bloom…

Silent Sunday… Away ~ #Poetry

Image by Smim Bipi from Pixabay ~ Poem by A Dawes

Away with the fairies
Back in time for tea
Anything you find must stay
Never fill your pockets with fairy treasure
Danger will stalk your life
Over the next year bad luck is yours
Never making the right choice, taking the right turn
Everything you do, crumbles
Dust is what your dreams are made of…
