In Your Dreams

Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.

Tupac Shakur

How do I
fall
asleep
When wakefulness
feels
like a dream?


garbled
soliloquy
Of regret
Half my heart
Longing
For further
Abuse

She told me
In your dreams
I said
Every night
If I could only
Dream

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, 12 percent of people only dream in black and white.


Suffering
Is caring
For the silence
That dreams to scream


A set stage
Abashed in alabaster
Adorned for action
Where the mercy of a touch
Waits forever

In your dreams
Do you imagine me
As I am?
How do you picture the mask?

Open Form Poetry

Open form poems, often still referred to as “free verse” poems, do not use regular rhythmic patterns (i.e., metric feet), are usually unrhymed, have varying line lengths, and have no set line groupings.

  2. I enjoyed this post, Mouse, especially the first quote and following poem. I often have a hard time distinguishing between my dream world and my waking world – from both perspectives. I love dreaming. Thanks for this dreaming post.
