Lost In Dreams

At d’Verse Poets, Mish  has us singing our own tune,

Lost In Dreams

I follow the path
laid out for me
eyes wide open
but heart clenched tight
and when the sun goes down
I get lost in dreams

I spend each day
as others see fit
like a mannequin
no thoughts or feelings
and when the sun goes down
I get lost in dreams

I speak in words
that are not mine
opinions muted
until the day ends
and when the sun goes down
I get lost in dreams

I’m lost in dreams of you
lost in dreams of you

~~

  1. I can feel the sadness and pain relieved by the dreams of night. The repetition of “lost in dreams” works well for song lyrics. A powerful piece as a poem or a song. 🙂

  2. Candy, The image of the mannequin and the muted opinions speak unspoken volumes. Daunting lines that leave your reader with more questions than answers, which is a hallmark of great poetry! I appreciate your talent 🙂

  3. A nearly perfect rendering of the prompt, for sure; as stated, works well for poem or song. It has a ballad vibe for me, female singer; Joan Baez.
