From the Pocket of a Dream


there are
some days when
my friendly sky is hidden
there are nights when 
the stars get dark
with the heavy
clouds of strange doubts
promising a storm a tempest
hard to be stopped
the one sending
the cold drops
of rain
to wash away
all the tiny grains
of one dream I had
when questions
with no answer
pile up
sharp towers
ripping up my hope
into shreds into debris
taking the calmness away
leaving me unsafe vulnerable
alone abandoned
like a broken
out there
at the merciless
stormy ocean of life

    As you know, we’ve been friends since the old MSN Live Spaces days. I don;t usually get a chance to come out and read you every day. However, when I do make it, I am always reminded why I come here. I am glad that so many other folks appreciate your talent as much as I do.

    I’m never really sure what to say in reaction to poetry. This is beautiful and sad and I wish I didn’t relate to it so well.
