The World of Dream

I walked out of the world of real
Into the world of dream
And it was much more wonderful
Than anything I'd seen

I felt the warmth of love at last
The comfort of a kiss
And wondered why I never dreamed
Of all these things I'd missed

Why had I lived my life in real
All my days on earth
When fantasy could make me see
My value and self worth

For here I'm given words of praise
I'm loved for who I am
There's no abuse or sorrow here
Just pure love of a man

But then in pondering the real
The loneliness of past
I realized that I'd walked into
The world of real at last

Submissive acts and masking truth
The pain I left behind
Were products of defensive self
Deceptions of the mind

I never knew true love before
The passion that I'd feel
I didn't know that happiness
Was in the world of real

I realize now my life began
The day he came to me
I've walked out of the world of dream
And found reality

Elizabeth Santos

Oh Liz, If you've found this world that makes you happy, hold on to it tight.  We make so much of our own sorrow, surely we can make our own joy.  Wonderful poem!

Elizabeth,
We never really leave our dream.
For that would be too extreme.
We always take a part of it,
As a weather vane or exit.

An excellent poem. Love Sy

When fantasy could make me see
My value and self worth"

What a difference love can make... even to those things that aren't supposed to be generated externally... like self-worth! This is beautiful!!! Well done!

Thank you all for your interesting comments. I think sometimes if you are subject to criticism too often, you start believing it, and then you try to be someone that you aren't just to please someone else. That's what I meant by living in a dream. But it could mean dirrerent things to different people.
Thanks

Beautiful Elizabeth!!!  

I realize now my life began
The day he came to me
I've walked out of the world of dream
And found reality

Especially loves these last 4 lines.

Elizabeth, my friend~
This one blows me away !
  
Here's a tall lemonade to
cool you in some leafy glade
of spring soon to come.
What a lovely heart you have, my friend.
Love ~*Marge*~

Awesome poem Liz. I realy got into this one. I agree with Martie we make alot of our own sorrow. and happiness is deffinitely subject to free will.

Oh Liz! This poem really hit home...
No one should have to mask true feelings or be something they're not to make others happy. We should all be happy with true selves and accept other's true selves too. I can't tell you how wonderfully this poem has flowed through my soul. I have to say, Passions has helped me be me. I mean, there is no need to mask feeling here for all emotion is accepted with open arms. What a gift.

Love and hugs,
Lizzie
