Dreaming

The Daily Post prompt is: dream

Waking from a dream is hard,

When morning brings a bitter light,

And nothing calls beyond the sill.

 

At night I join the starlit dance,

Among the hopes that still shine bright,

Waking from a dream is hard.

 

The hollow ache beneath the ribs,

Begins as dawn-chased shadows fade,

When morning brings a bitter light.

 

No one holds out waiting arms,

The blackbird sings for other ears,

And nothing calls beyond the sill.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
