The broken spell of sleep brought me a dream

Dreamy, pure and clear as water in a pious stream


The world I saw was nonviolent and kind



Gentle caress of peace it sent to my mind


There I saw spirits raised up above the zeal so high

I witnessed souls and angels circle the sky


No hate and envy, so serene was it in vision

Black, brown, skin akin, humanity sans division


Could there ever be peace to find,

Or would it only be castles in air, in mere states of mind?

It's like the beautiful dream that we wish the world could be. I think when we have those dreams, it's the only time we get a beautiful sleep. Your dream scape imagery is pure and tranquil, and it gives your words and rhymes that soft sirene feel that is almost ethereal. You just write the most beautiful, and when you have this dream, I'll guard your bedroom door so that no one can disturb you. Your writing puts a smile on my face, and even though I am a tortured soul, your poetry becomes my dream of a better place. Beautiful dearest, and keep searching for that perfect dream Rehmat :)
