Parallel Dreams
Parallel Dreams
Reality awakens in my heart,
and memories from long ago arise,
now battles cause my dreams to fall apart
and fantasy then crawls away and dies.
The one who should be near is far away,
and you, who dominate my thoughts at night,
are lying with me in a quiet day
and gripping hands, once strong, with all your might.
You lead me from the bed of gentle love,
as we recall the passions one time known:
you raise my head to your warm breast above
and here our story might be left alone.
Will those who know us wonder what you gave --  
and with your gift which one of us you save?
Author's Notes:
An English sonnet written in iambic pentameter for my Muse, referring to our continual dialogue concerning the dreams and realities we experience in our journeys through life.

You do sonnets very well Tristan. This was gently romantic and the title was good too.

The strong title begins a journey with you and clime every emotion, thought and touch with you. It enlightens the soul and embrace the senses. A sonnet of beauty and love, as sonnets were meant to be written. I admire everything about this piece and I love every word. It brings a echo in me my soul lit to the embrace.
Exceptional work Tristan, a special kind of poetry.

What can one say after reading this??

“Though dreams can be deceiving,

like faces are to hearts, 

they serve for sweet relieving, 

when fantasy and reality lie too far apart.” 

Your poetry is classical and etherial and is surely the sheer delight of your muse.

This is good! But as you may have gathered I do not have a poet's education most of my writes are simple rhymes or free verse I have tried a few "forms" The sonnet  is one of my favorites,  I have written a sestina, an acroustic, but that is as far as my experamentation goes

Like I said this is good I enjoyed the read and as Barbara stated "the last two lines are smokin!"

Your mastery of the sonnet is astounding Tristan. Another piece superbly well penned :)

"The style is the man himself." ~Comte De Buffon Another fine piece written in iambic pentameter...and so much of the man in mix to appreciate. Excellent! Whew...that last two lines are smokin'...
