DREAMLAND


The wind whispers dissonant tones.
In dark discord and feral moans
Of pointless admiration spent,
Another dream has come, and went.

Yes, comes awake, and willfully
Passed into the dawn of decree;
A grievous task set before
Me, once encompassed, nevermore...

To hold the chalice of truth dear,
Drink of ambition without fear
Of retribution by the hands
Of Time within a timeless land...

As specters roam the gilded aisles
Of Memory, chasing the smiles
Clean from my cold and gasping lips
Into the rictus of Eclipse.

And eyes, pinned open, wide awake,
Could never be enough to slake
The foreboding of daunted Sleep
Calling me to his brother's keep.


Michael Anderson


But dreams of those who dream as I,
Aspiringly, are damned and die.

Good write, sleep tight.

very nice to see your name here this morn
you've been missed
as has your gift for thought provoking imagery and my personal favorite ...
your awe inspiring rhyme and cadence that dress up your depth of expression of the emotions.
sleep seems like such a waste of good poetry writing time huh M? ... still ... I know.
take care of you poetic prince

You are still, Incredible Michael.

I tried to read this one silently, but it is so beautiful....begs to be sung...even in an early morning whisper...

(I wanna be like Mike.) grins again...

This is really an amazing read, Michael.
Take care and keep writing....

Just amazing talent with your rhyme and the cadence in this.  I wish you and Kit would try writing something together one time.  Now that would be a treat!
