Eyes Shut Tight

If I held my eyes shut tight


Then I could dream


My sky is so dark


And So it seems


My love will be the measure


Of the time spent


In the solitude


Of my seclusion


And the illusion or the delusion


Of what that may bring.


When I awake


Take away my hands


That have cupped my ears


And hear only my heartbeat


Then our love


This raging storm


Will be no more.


If I held my eyes shut tight


Then maybe I could dream.

Some of your work just speak to me!  This is one.  If all can just be how we think, wish or just dream about it...  Well said!

Srong stuff, John..The escape to dreamland is so friggin' temporary...Then life is right there, staring you in the face.

 

"My love will be the measure


Of the time spent


In the solitude


Of my seclusion


And the illusion or the delusion


Of what that may bring."

That's good STUFF!....len

Will be no more.

John, This is so very beautiful.. if we did not have our dreams what do we have??
