SCATTERED DREAMS

Scattered dreams

Through floating time

Disturbing scenes

Wash ashore on bitter brine

 

Chaotic plans

Soon fly apart

Mystic fans

Dying from the heart

 

Visual ecstasy

Lasts only as long as a memory

Fleshed fantasy

Satisfies everything sensory

 

Wading through pages

Provides my stimulation

Succumbing to rages

Is only a simulation

 

Wandering eyes

Never sates the appetite

Desire to fly

Does not necessitate flight

 

Through the years

Desire becomes sick and yellow

Misspent tears

Will not buy me that fellow

 

A chorus of angels

Flutters above

Playing thier bells

But not beating love

 

Fear is a cloud

That clogs my mind

If only to lift the shroud

Happiness I just might find

 

Can you feel my voice?

As it eternally lingers

Stroking your choice

Like cotton-tipped fingers

 

Can you read my thoughts

As this sleepy fog does lift

Remind me that I fought

To make this journey swift

 

I do not want this emptiness

I wish to be at last fulfilled

I wish to end this sadness

And find my champagne waiting and chilled
