Dream Maker

You called me dream maker
And I believed you.
Though my reasons
Lacked honor,
I wanted to bask in the glow
Of your joy.
I remember how it shone so.
You would sparkle and laugh,
And for one brief moment
In time...You were mine.
Then like the phoenix,
Newly risen from the ashes,
You set your eyes to new
Horizons, and I awoke alone.
My selfish tears wanted
to protest, but the truth
Was evident.
I was a dream maker, 
But you were the dream.

Sometimes love means letting go... that's my 2 cents anyway.

A poem truly worthy of honor! :o)

Great poem Jolen, fully deserving the award. I like the way the phrase "dream maker" takes on different connotations at the beginning and end of the poem. By the time we get to the end, the phrase has a sadder feel to it than at the beginning. I love the cleverly self-deprecating way you make your love seem selfish and dishonourable - "I wanted to bask in the glow/Of your joy". This heightens the power of the revelation at the end of the poem that the dream was, like all dreams, imaginary. I think you could probably lose the phoenix metaphor without doing the poem any harm, unless it has some significance that I don't understand. Other than that, the poem is excellent. Well done.

Perfecty-put. Honestly, I couldn't imagine being able to do it any better. This situation sounds familiar... perhapse we have something to gap about via pm?

very deserving of the award. just wow.......
Comment By: FreeN.M.Sodergran on June 11, 2006 05:19:04 PM Report
Very pleasant that this poem can be interpreted in many different ways. Initially read as a poem on relationships, I have since revised my first impression to now include dreams as such.  I can't wait to read it again and see what comes up, hahaha :)
Beautiful in its voice, skillful in its execution!  Congrats on the award too, but I guess we the readers are the lucky ones ;)  Cheers!  Aeth

wonderful the words are the power as is the theme

Lady Jolen , quite a dream maker you are! I would think being a dream maker is always better than a dream breaker. Keep dreaming and share them with us, YLM.

A sad experience turned into a poem of rare beauty.
Jody, is it just chance that the title appears in a song from another great movie (Moon River)?

P.S. Into my favourites :-).

This is so beautifully wistful and the words reach out and grab the reader! I sense this to be about children and the pain of letting go. Jody, this is just excellent! Henry
