I just wrote this for anyone who feels alone, yet inspired to dream....

I sit alone by the fireplace, and my simple mind despairs

It's all caught up in a tangled web, contemplating thoughts of you

Someone appears in front of me with an open hand

But I notice that it is not empty, yet holds a room with a view

I step into the room, and it leads me into another realm

I pass through the corridors of your thoughts this time

As you whisper to me softly and you caress my face

Until I realize in this dream I have dulled it's shine

For you have now disappeared into the darkness

And left not a trace of your soul, not even a candle

To burn a flame for a guiding light for me to see

And I must face the fact that you've gone off to handle

Another place in time for you have so many dreams

To fuel in other minds and you must press on

For I am nothing but a dying flame in this barren place

So I drift along blindly for I cannot see what's gone

But I cross paths with another fading light, but I grasp onto it

I won't let go of it for I need the fuel for my sunken eyes

My misfortune has caused us both pain and I know

I need to return to the surface quickly in my disguise

For I wish to be out of this dream and into reality

I return to the surface now and I have survived this bliss

I am awake as I should have been before I took the dive

Before I took your hand, and before I fell into this.......

A delightful read. It almost sounded like a near death experience. Drowning perhaps and getting to that first or second level of death. Very neatly done. It sets the mind to work.

well, to each their own interpretation. my writing is creative art and if that's how you imagine it, then I guess my job is done well, so thank u for leaving your opinion on this piece *m*

a piece to dwell on and reflect on, there are several meanings and each as good as the other. Very descriptive and i loved to read it.
