Perfect Life

Perfect Life

I pin my hopes and dreams
on a cork-less board
and watch them fall
empty and unfulfilled
to the floor below

Time after time I wonder,
was there a hiccup
in my biological make up
convincing me to believe
things that will never be?

In my mind’s eye is a vista
of a life of perfection
One I am meant to be living
But it never becomes reality
Patience stretched to snapping

Disillusioned but not beaten
I continue to pin hopes and dreams
wherever they might adhere
Because one day, perhaps
something will eventually stick

Hopes and Fears

Hopes and Fears

Lost in the current
of my dreams
floating in between
hopes and fears
Drifting towards that haven
between anxiety and peace
Hoping to decipher
confusing messages
laid before me
Who waves the prickly pear
in my face?
A punishment for a  wrong
I unknowingly committed?
Who are these adversaries
in my sleep?
What have I done?
Wishing to shake off the
hands that claw at me
I struggle to wake

In dreams 
black lions stare
as you gape in wonder
Irrational thoughts
prevail in your heart
But your mind senses
a foreboding 
of what might come
It is speaking to you 
Listen!
Bury your head
in the sand no longer
Step back, step aside
Empty the mind of untruths
and broken promises
collected over time
Take off the blinders
See the world for what it is
Not the one you have chosen to live in
Come back from the wilderness
“Do or do not, there is no try.”
You no longer have to live
in a prison of your own making

Mish is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has prompted us with
lines from famous movies.  From the many she suggested, I chose
the following to include in my poem.
 
“Do or do not, there is no try.” – Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, 1980

Awakening

Awakening

Pitch black
and blinding
Darkness devours
Slowly suffocating
Suppressing breath
Starving lungs
Until that
prayed-for
moment
when,
gasping for air
oxygen finally
reaches the brain
Shaking
the spirit awake
to witness
day-breaking sun
and feel
its healing powers
Proving that
darkest moments
are always before
the dawn
The new day brings
hope for change

Imagining

Imagining

In dreams you come
and hide in the layers
of my mind
Nestled where
I feel your presence
and draw
from your strength
That I might find hope
with the infusion
of your love
coursing
through my veins
Knowing I am 
not always alone
I sleep deep
in your comfort

Floating

Floating

One look, one word
was all it took
to take the breath
from her body
Lifting her upwards
Floating in euphoria
High above
the kingdom
of her love
The clouds
at best trying 
to poke her
back to reality
Losing the battle
as she drifted
into her dreams

In Dreams

In Dreams

That rare moment
when you feel yourself
hanging between
sleep and awake
A euphoric state
you never want to end
Stopping and starting
doing a retake
 
Multiplying the climax
again and again
until sleep is triumphant
finally surrendering
The mind relaxes
and in dreams you travel
to another world
of visions for remembering
