Dreams are what they say they are, They're just dreams. They are what you want. Something you want to be done, But can't always be completed, Because it's all just in your mind. Just like I said, Dreams are exactly what they say they are.
Shadows, Acrosss the field, Across the meadow, Across the lawn and across the room, As the adults yawn and the children snore. Lollipops, gumdrops, Nightmares and blessed dreams,
When down comes the sun, Up comes the moon. As the stars shine brightly down on the children of the world, They go to their secret escape. They call it dreamland.
Between these walls lie hope A special place Hope of one day achieving a dream Perhaps a piece of paper with your name on it
In my past Life I was in charge of a dock. Everyday I ran the imports and exports. Everyday new things came and went. Stowaways. Precious jewels.

My heart is racing fast,My adrenaline is singing.The wind is tearing at me,To my horse I'm clinging.
I fear of tonight I fear for the drive home Not of what I will come home to- But of what may happen later on I fear of closing my eyes and seeing something Beautiful something miraculous
The waking world I’ve realized Is limited And can’t surprise The busy, buzzing Mind inside
You chased stars,I ran after trains You threw yourself into dreams,And I jumped in front of carsBut in those moments When we sat by the tracks And looked into the sky Together,
There is nothing more beautiful More beautiful than you The sun is a mere old and rusted penny compared to the glow of your Iris blue If I could put your sweet voice in a seashell
Dreams die as people dine with fishes, Life is sand in an ever-draining hourglass, To float on murdered wishes Is laying waste in the mind only to harass, Flow not, wander on always And find the soul lost,

Dreams, Floating along the fabric of my mind, treading into ideas and thoughts. Without these thoughts, how could I live? Nothing can be done without a dream.

Our words will stumble from my memory, and I will not feel any emptiness When the sun's light sees her own reflection In me. And then I will miss you no more I will walk with quiet footsteps;
I hope, I wish, I dream Though distant it may seem That one day I will succeed And this is my only plea.
I sail the seas that stretch foreverA memory I will remember… I finish my thought and drift away;I am whisked off to another day.
Nine hundred and ten days Many days filled with laughter, Few filled with sadness. Nine hundred and ten days,
We're living in a world filled with injustice, where we don't have to be doing anything and the cops think they can touch us, another man down, now that really starts to touch us,
An idea, a memory, a thought. Things wort more than air. Love. A whisper, a smile, a tender look. Things more valuable than the oxygen in or lungs.

Is it the way the breeze feels on the skin On a hot day, when you just feel it within Is it a child's smile? So innocent and Undeniable Or is it something unmeasurable? Something that's naked and unable.
the feeling of a dream being broken realizing that the wildest and fondest conjurings of your brain will never come to fruition being trapped in a well
I’ve already devoted myself and my life to a cause that still may fall through but there would be no purpose to anything I do if I didn’t try.
You say you're here for me You say I can count on you You say... a lot of things. "You just aren't like that" "You should lower your expactations" "Reality check..."
What I need are my dreams I have while awake. My ambitions that keep me foing forward, Doubt I always shake. Growing and succeeding for those whom I care, Becoming a better person, becoming more aware.
My dreams, plans, desires, merging at one location. Faith is what I'll bring.
Once, I wished upon a star To take me to a land afar Away from death, away from life Away from sins, and stress, and strife I sat upon my windowsill And watched the stars, with time to kill
I don't remember Most of the dream. Just that you Were in it. Alive. I think I met Your parents? Your brothers? I don't remember Most of the dream.
My Life is not for everyone. My ways are not to your liking, then to bad. I'm a warrior princess with ideas that reach far beyond the heavens. I have dreams that you may never understand. It's my life as I walk with my head high.
Well I had that damn dream again. The one where you come back. You show up at my house, dressed to the nines with roses in your hand.
You would call out into your restless night, “I need an Angel that will end my fight, one that brings daybreak upon my endless night.” But the storm raged on, unwavering.
I dream about his hazel-green eyes. About the way he made me cry. I dream about the way his hand fit perfectly in mne. How I never could understand why. Dreams are created from this dirty blonde boy.
I don't belong in heaven, I'm not accepted in hell, I'm neither angel, nor demon, I don't belongin the human realm. I have some power, and nothing to give. I have a life, whith nothing for which to live.
I am tired. Tired of holding my tongue at the thoughts my mind shouts. What do I want to do? Who do I want to be? How will I make money? I do not know. And I am tired.
For some it's dreams that get in the way of living For me it's reality that gets in the way of dreaming. Fishing on those hot summer days, Going home empty handed, laughing all the same.

Must I be patient for my own demise? I do not know what is out there, beyond crests of time, pillows of snow & schemes of wonder. Lust towards unknown and unheard of realities.
When morning comes, i'll shield my eyes The rising sun shines through the blinds I roll over in attempt To come back to the dreams i've left Oh how wonderful would it be To stay here in this mindless glee
Endowed with many emotions Some which lead to eternal devotion The rings that bless those who wear And given then to another pair Together entwined their hearts shall be
It’s moments like these that I am aware of reality I am mortal, expendable. My life is so fucking short it’s the blink of an eye and as I lay awake at 4am as I do tonight I wonder
Dreams too far, too far to reach Floating in mid air Not contain, not planned Scattered they are Far too bland
Need gets confused with want You ask me about it, and I can’t respond For need changes in time
What i need is something as beautiful as white gold The very declaration of this word is quite bold Now wait, stay with me, though i know i am young This word is just something that just slips off the tongue
There's a river I know, in the land of the dead, where many call home, and others may dread. There's a city I know, where the parties are gold, where the liquor is silver,
All I need is an oxymoron a word I can't even speak can't describe a fallacy in language feather's edge tip of the tongue I need your arms to encircle me
this is not my legacy this is not my dream this is not my everything this is not what it seems
It was at night I saw a sight A true vision Of another dimension I was filled with fear For what was near My future I saw A large dark claw Groping at my eyes

i was the nobody in the hall, the loaner on the wall, i’ve walked in those same off brand running shoes that’s why this new poem that i wrote right here is dedicated to you.
Reality doesn't seem real to me A mundane reality laughs mockingly Towards me, Knowing I cannot escape But I will fight on, My future is mine And, I am the master of my fate For reality not seeming real
Maybe it was just this year I suddenly became old. Old hit me with crying over Facebook videos in the middle of the night.

I open my eyes to another Hell As I’m pulled into another restless dream. I fight the demons though my fears swell I fight through their torture and schemes. I’m blinded by an explosion
Her dreams torn apart Her hopes crushed forever and Nothing matters now
There was a dream I once had as a child, about a city of lights covered in white- where the skies were red, and the ocean was oil. A place where the ground was cold; hard to walk upon, and even harder to sow.
Imagine this huge castle- and in this castle, you’re the king. Or a queen or whatever. But there’s nobody to serve you- and yet you’re happy to be alone and rule a world entirely your own.
It’s always fun when something totally consumes you. When your mind goes blank and feeling lost becomes fun.

I am... Special, Different, Individualistic, Unique. I believe in myself and who I may become. I am... Resilient, Strong, Confident, Determined.
You may strip me to the bone and examine my every part Go ahead and remove my soul While I pray to GOD that I will let go Of all my insecurities And my bad qualities And a broken back that will not stop me.
I am Those thick thighs and brown eyes That I hope you will love, just as I do I am The coiled hair and curly fries and a few mountain dews I am The one who is after the gold prize
Watching a mammoth glacier As it moved slowly across the blue and red seas A ship made of gold and myrrh Set adrift to follow the breeze. Its body was pure snow
You linger in the form of bruises..Marking a roadmap on my body of all your favorite places. A constant reminder of the fire I wish I could deny but always give into. Sentencing me to a death made for insects: as I become the moth drawn to your fl
I am a dreamer. My mind is a playing field My goals are the starters, As my oppositions take the bench. But sometimes they get up No longer rooted They get a chance to take part in something
I am not a number. I am not another data point in a meaningless statistic. I am a human, flesh and blood; With a spirit like a lion And a hopeless wanderer’s heart.
A child weak, soft like youth Is a lion of eye and tooth In dreams that trickle down like sand, Down a clock, tick-tock the hand, And whisper sweet litanies upon the head
"I don't drink" There was a time when those words were true But now. . . Well, not so much. Now I love the feeling Of drowning in a sea of fog, On neither side of that thin line

As I lay down to sleep I feel his dark shadow cross my mind His fedora tilted low upon his face A black suit and long cape his trademark. He smiles softly.

In circles, we go around and around Inadvertently choosing to frown It’s the lurking fear we just cannot face,
Each hope I have rests here; My dreams, they’re still inside. For though the hope’s to fly 'Twill be a long, long ride. Though music sings about me I fear to dance alone.

Amongst the dulled murmur, a clear song rises. Even as the chains bind our arm, our hearts soar free, only hindered by the limits of our imagination.
Cat-God. Scars on human souls like cracks on china plates, stone-cold glue seeping from wounds frozen mid-drip. Cat-God. Paws against old wood shelf, one furry oaw on slick porcelain.
When I close my eyes my mind wonders and my imagination flies. I can'y help but ponder... what from my dreams will arise? Slowly I fall into an abyss and my dreams fly all around me.
Someday the distance between us will be gone.
What are visions? Are they dreams? Are they prophesies? Are they fantasies? Are they lies told to ourselves? Are they glimpses of another dimensions in which we are the same person, but walk a different path?

My body relaxes and I feel calm.The gentle sounds I hear when I’m aloneare racing down my warm face in turquoisestreams. I like to pretend that my pasteldreams are more than the ocean and seashells.
I've always loved the ocean and every time I look into your eyes, I feel as if I'm swimming in it. Every time you kiss me my world comes to a halt and I never want it to end.
I wish my dreams were real life.

When the boy was little, he dreamed of having wings. Like an angel, he could rise, and forget all earthly things. When the boy became a teen, he dreamed of going to war.
Without filters I fear for my mind and the tricks it plays on itself all the time Without filters in which I see the world My eyes would see opportunity everywhere and not just the beaches,

Throughout the early life, you are told stories about how the world is good, dreams come true, and magic happens. It requires love, time, and effort; however, anything is possible.

Bump, bump, bump, the needle goes. Stitch after stitch; they form a row. Two pieces of fabric sewn to make a seam. Sew, pull, cut; it becomes a routine. Hard work and imagination you need
There’s something comical
I am a Human Being.
Somewhere in this crawl space that we call a brain,
A bubbling Laugh, a warm Smile,
perhaps dreams are a gateway to a new reality
One day it's marked in your head, others, it's in the air. Like vapor, it lingers, possibly poisonous. It's up to you to let it set inside you, to take control, almost killing you,

When I take pictures, I want them to be me. No hidden faults, no dumb deceits. When I take pictures, I show the way I feel. I am a human being, Unlike pictures, I am real.
My hair is thinning My skin is almost pale My life is nothing like a fairytale I am of the average height Contacts help me see what's in sight I look for depth in everyone
It is kind of a funny story
He keeps me up
I’m not sure what I am feeling.
In darkeness, there is light. In the rain, there is sun shine. So even while I'm unable to grasp the pai, my mind is at ease. For even through death is life.

All I am in life is a complete mess up that ruins everything No matter what I do; I always manage to mess up everything in my wake Everything I do leaves a huge crater that will sting
I reach out as far as my arm can bear So I can have a piece all to myself And each glistening spec of light intensifies my yearning for the night I feel the milky rays of the galaxy brush my cheek
When people think of dreams
I want you to see the part of me that glass so often hides. Scrolling down your Instagram feed, you would barely even recognize me. I want you to see the part of me that is hidden by makeup
A nighttime fantasy more brilliant then any before
When I heard how she felt
I hope... Because I care... Because I love my friends... Family... Neighbors... The powerful message... Jesus taught me To love your neighbor as yourself If it wasn't for that

He lives where I can’t stay
My car doesn't need gas it runs on drive to go fast
There is beauty in the folds of my skin and the crease in my brow Underneath my matt of hair and freckles There is power behind my quiet voice and my timid thoughts Seeing past my unsureness and doubt
The heaven’s open up, I’m standing in this ghost town, Lost soul with no purpose, Wondering why, One more person wishing for an unknown sky, The heaven’s clear, Then brilliance strike,
He made promises. Things he could never reach and things he could never keep. He saw things beyond his reach. He would gaze at the moon and stars

English is a language far too complex, Ordinary man or scholar it will perplex. It seems nothing will translate directly, Because it cannot be expressed correctly.
Look in my eyes and see what I fail to say the pain and sadness that I have no solution to but stay confused

Last night, as I dozed, I had a dream, But what would a dream be but a bitter gleam- of a thought-cycle loop, a mash then release, a randomized chemical silence and ease. A mosaic I saw, and color so vividly,

She smiles so deeply that it leaves imprints on her cheeks. Her laugh brings joy to others that are far beyond her reach.
I am the Dreamer Who finds safety
God save the dreamer Whose home was a fort of betrayal His eyes were shattered like crystal At a glimpse of the unmistakable truth They made him a rigid boulder A mob of pitchforks and claws
I smile at the storm Because I love the challenge The fog covering my Dreams Makes my dreams vivid The rain weighing me down Adds to the weight that anchors me To the roots of my passions

A lavender sky Shadows caressing the clouds and millions of laughing stars The vivacious sun ignores the moon's protests and takes her into his arms I lay, entranced by the wonder around me
I met her by the seasideAlmost in a tranceAs sunshine shone upon herAnd skipping waves did dance.She called me with a whisperThrough the ocean air,But as I did approach her

Drained and deranged, I dreamed I could build beauty. Blueprinted, diagrammed Just a god in a cage.
My dreams are most vivid when I bolt Awake staring at the ceiling where the stucco shoots Constellations to my brain, just a telescope that won’t retract Or react to the basic instincts meant to drive
I wanna take someone's soul out there heart and put it in mines but no matter how hard I try to become someone different the reality is always permitted ...
Constantly in a confused thought
open the fridge my pasta is boiling in side of it
Blind. Blinded by the sound of nothing. Silence. Breath. Slam. Bang. Click. The intesity builds. Lights come into focus. Shadows. Anxious feet. Steady.
I often dream of dreams dreams of flying dreams of dying dreams where I wake up crying dreams defying All the lot dreamed of weddings. I dreamed of settings dreamed of regretting

I wake up and I am fifteen, Years past and he looks at me. Who is he but myself in grief, What have I done and what do I do. Who am I and who are you, Am I black or am I blue,
You claim we aren't different But we are When you wake up in the morning Your nightmare ends Mine simply continues
Night falls and it consumes me
What? I thought I was the only one I guess I was wrong I should of known all we had and even a love song... Didnt matter to you or him,
Just children were we when we first met Prancing about one another without a care. Though oft not we would see the another Each time was as if the previous game had not been left.
I met her in a dream Crazy as it seems She laughed like I did And I found that funny
You are the sunshine i am the rain i just wanted You to be mine but You were avoiding pain
I never thought I'd see the day; Where I'd struggle to find the words to say; But you leave me pondering, yet breathless; I can't hold it back, I must confess this; Your eyes read a book, yet you remain a mystery;
A puppeteer strings an open mouth, She is me, and I am her. Tells me what to say− Obedient, teeth clacking. Indecent
The Antithetic Leaf Come on...blow me away; Get me off of this tree;
Bigger than my eyes can see, When I open wide, My heart comes out before my eyes, Pumping louder than my bursts of expression, Expressing how passionate I am,
What a dream...
A shadow appeared The fatal apparition In my dream A corrupted echo Her hands were steady Calm and ready For night’s return

I feel entirely empty, so lost & distant; You leave me nothing, but a reminiscent; I hear your name and my heart skips beats; I try to cope, but always experience defeat;
Well this is quite a surprise. I've never been asked this inquiry before.
You feel it, like sweet kisses upon your skin. Kisses you yourself have never known, but still imagine.
A mask for the task at hand to find success and to be the best to draw peace from a green light in uncertain darkness i have to put up a fight although i know not where i'll land
I dream of less less than what has happened more than what will be simply lost in all of my minds subconscious poetry she reads to me rich righteous texts mysterious wisdom gained in the night
I was addicted You would not believe it when I told you
We all have a desire It may be open and it may be silent Whatever the case may be We still all have that one thing That keeps us going Drives us to victory and attain our goals
Whatever your age, whatever your race, whatever your gender I want you to dream big without censor All the beautiful things you could ever imagine Are only ever, just a mere fraction
How does a dream metastasize? It starts off as a cellular thought So miniscule that it barely pinches your consciousness – but It’s still there…
Merry-go-round DreamsWritten by Adam M. SnowMerry-go-round dreams;round and round it goes.In a cloudy scene,

Many will never Discover the simple things That make life complete
Today Shades upon shades of cover and shadow Smokescreens of laughter filling an empty hallow. Nobody knows and nobody will ever know. The book nerd who devours stories that pushes
Photographers capture a moment in time, Each little movement in orderly rhyme. From nature to people, photos aren't the same, From color to black, photos are never plain. Memories are made with one little click,
I see the pain, I see the power the cruel gain. I stand aside, I turn and hide. When will I stop being so afriad?
I live for the fame, the dreams, and all the greens I sing from the top of my lungs but no one hears me I put on disguises and act around the house but no one sees me
I am Bill Gates At least I wish to beileve that's true A high school drop out with fantasies that explains If he can do it I can do it too
Nothing has ever been handed to me.
Are we really meant to move ahead All the things holding us back, sometimes I just lay in bed The war, the debt, the things we can't change I'd speak about it but get labeled insane
For some sleep is rest for the weary. But for others, dreamless sleep is the escape from the prisons.
I am Celestial - Celestial Star.
It's the gaurana, the crickets, the dust bunnies gaurding curtains, gates to a kingdom of ants on a windowsill. It's the tangled, ragged ropes, once daisy chains with wide, flattened faces
When you wake up what do you see? Do you see the world as a cruel unusual placeOr do you see that you were blessed with dreams to achieve everyday.
I've been accepted to college which is such great news the only sad part is that I'll be away from you. Away from your love, away from your laughter but it is ok I'll be fine, I cant stay forever.

There was once a boy who was not willing to fight For he was always humiliated and seen as shy. In him, there was no courage and only fright. He was fragile and only measured a short height.
First I want to start off with “IM SORRY” I was angry, upset, devastated knowing that you were going through some serious shit that I didn’t have any control over.
My skin burns where your hands once were like acid on light flesh. I've taken four showers today to try to wash away the pain but your handprint stays on my porcelain skin.
Soft steps echo in the hushed hall. Dark figures sit and stare while Warm rays of light fall on him. Standing in center stage in front of a piano He bows, and then prepares for what is to come.
Please eat... I hear their silent plea. Eyes look at me carefully. I smile gracefully but can't tame the voice inside of me. "No thanks. I'll have coffee." Can't they leave me be? Getting thin has a fee but I'm not scared. Can't they see?
One night, as I slept, I dreamt a dream of voices. In my dream, I saw young choirs, In the choirs, I saw young children. But no matter what, I heard wonderful singers-

I would rather fall into a pit
I flew upon the fragrant wings
Prisoner of Words Unsaid For so long For so long I've been a prisoner A life sentenced prisoner for a crime they committed for me Like Alicia Keys "I'm a prisoner of words unsaid
There's a world outside this hell-hole that I now live. I've been dreaming about it since I was in the second grade, This world is busy yet calming , This world has opportunity and exotic people.
Inspiration What is inspiration but a fanny pack full of hammy down quotes from people no different than you or I. Or is it indifference that allows one to be different. "Haters gnna hate!"
Walking down this road I called home Thinking of all my dreams that seem so far to reach My mind and heart whispers courage but reality seems to crush my dreams

I love you more than words can say.
I want to be heard! I want my words, my screams and shouts to be heard by everyone.
A dream thats lost means that all hope is gone A dream thats found means that courage is back on Things that you follow means nothing at all Its until then that you realize to go for a chance
Sitting alone Knowing what I have done

You threw me away like a grain of sand, Carried astray by the winds at hand. All for what? Your own self-righteous gain; Hopes that you've preserved your precious treasures of today?

Life is something i find myself thinking, yet i don't have much of an inkling, of what i might really be thinking. My thoughts sway and shift, dwell and jump, yet never stop. Life is a universe,
The pit pattering of heart stills Earth stops, water spills Thinking of ourselves as nothing? Passionately desiring for something Others forever against us Not wanting to hold us or defend us

Understand that life has changes New chapters come, we are forced to turn like pages Some of us live...like we are ageless but overcame by pain and sorrow we ask ourselves "How can we change this?"

I stare at myself in the mirror, And the image looking back at me is one that is disappointing, I look in the mirror and the body that appears infront of me, does not match my mind.

❤ The warmth burning my skin
Excerpt from his life, he would never want to recollect.
I've gotten so used to the rain that I hardly feel it anymore It's liek a friend giving sweet, sweet caresses Letting me know everything is all right The cobble stone sidewalks that trip me on my walk remind me
If I could change one thing in this world I would eliminate doubt. You could be the next Picasso, the next Magic Johnson, the next Steve Jobs, the next Oprah. But you're scared of what he thinks, what she thinks.
They grab And they pull They try to change things around Like clay My life Think they can keep me sound But do they Even know What I love to do? THEY are blind
If I could change, capture my dreams could I? Feel it in my burning heart and shattered dreams living inside a tear stained soul. Drive and passion pushed to their limbs end.
When you ask a child "what do you want to be" Their answer naivee lays on the heart and warms you, The smile on your face starts to curve even higher and you think how sweet.
To change one thing would be a dream. Where people don't bully or judge. Whether it's just because or you're holding a grudge.
I woke up feeling tenuous,The pain of my whole species.I stood up to find the floor is like a pond, the roof is leaking.There's a breach in my shelter, I'm only figuratively speaking.
All dreams are a branch of reality
The Devils Eyes That’s a frosty way to speak To tell me how to live your dream. I believed in you So you should believe in me. Like fire I tried, I bled into the night,
Mikki and Church It might’ve been her Or the life I lived, But the results were all the same. When I moved to this city It wasn’t just another move, It was the start to a dream
Is it everyone's dream to change one thing about the world? I wonder how many people dream and do it versus how many people just do it.
It is the championship game and more than what the stadium could contain came with glorifying support oh how baseball is a lovely sport; The harmonious chords rang as the National Anthem was sang
Wrapped in warmth you stay A smile dances on your lips Your eyelashes flutter as I whisper I breathe out simple words, An image is painted. You’re weak and powerless I control you.
Jump into the fire The beauty of death I must admire Burn to a charcoal And let go of your soul Jump into the fire And make your situation dire
By the last breath in me, I plan to solve inequity, After the hell of catastrophe I'll dissolve the pain that dwells in me, After all of the hypocrisy I'll lead your soul to ecstacy, But with society blinded by conformity My harmony is shackled b
It came upon a dream one night,
It hits us! Always in the beginning we feel good, peaceful, warm. This will last forever… we always think that. It ends up to be cold, bitter and sour.
Memories from childhood bounced out of a thick fog in her mind. Wishing her siblings would learn to leave her things alone. Wishing, for just one day, she could live in a quieter house.
She works harder than ten men combine Working night and day till her knees break and hands swell Living in a cardboard box with only the clothes on her back
How can I tell The difference between reality
Oh dreams, how you tempt me, You offer what my heart truly seeks. But yet you are just out of my reach, Visiting me only in the night. My life so marvelous in you, Turns to dust with the light of the sun.
Passion is a thing of dreams.
I've discovered there are two paths to escape reality,
I am not a
Believe in me I 'm going to see A world so big, but small Travel far
Dont Call it a dream. Dreams only occur in sleep. Dreams are extraordinary treasures that not even the strongest force can grasp. Dreams are for those who embody the strength to pursue goals but choose not to.
She was built of fantasy, Of words and lyrics and prose. She spent life dreaming And never arose. Her family told her She was taking too big a chance. If she jumped, she would fall,
Preening cream silk,her eyesbecome soft burning embersof the deepest blue hue.Then,
No such thing as time So no time to make the climb Even though you're dreaming In your sleep you're still screaming Even when you wake you still keep the pain
Live in a dream Inside your own head you scream You isolate your mind But you're still not one of a kind Wait in your dreamland Bury yourself in imaginary sand Where do you belong?
Making all the rules
I am one with dreams wishes and desires but I am not the only one we all have aspirations we want to reach we want to reach nirvana the place we are most comfortable in
Pollenated dreamin suffused orbscan you see whatyou are looking atThe ground the entirety
This may be belated, but education has stated that we need it for jobs. Where we rob the poor for the poorer. Your money's never yours, it's his and hers and theirs and mine. You say that's just fine,
When you dream do you believe it once actually happened? Maybe in a movie, mixed with parts of your reality? Is it about a dream of your "true love"? Is it about a dream of a battle you will fight in the future?
I am a dream A picture formed on the mind I am a vision Is what I think of all the time But what does it all mean?
I'm wishing on a star Waiting for my dreams to come true Still all alone in my dark little room Just waiting for my wish to be realized
I will taste the stars And most likely scorch my tongue, But I will return To fly yet once more Amongst the burnt-out, dead husks Of those ancient dreams.
It was another bad nightAnother resort to my pad nightI can’t even write, I’m so tired…But it’s the only way I can nod outIt’s like a high to me.
I give my all My dreams are my youth Take them away from me I’m a T-shirt, shorts, and shoes. And you know damn well that I’m gonna fight, Because when it comes to my dreams When it comes to my life,
Someday I hope to be surrounded by the glamour Encompassed by the sound of the indistinct cameras I take a look around for the long exposure panorama But I wake up to the pounding of a steal nose hammer
My eyes They burn My mind It hurts Hypocrisy Beating at my heart Lies Making my heart not want to beat Stop it Please, stop it
Reality is but an illusion, The heart a magician. The mind is audience, Shifting like winds of society. Reality is but an illusion, Trickery of every kind.
"I'm an alien with a heart and a face, I am foreign, but where I go, I leave a trace. They told me my dreams were too far at reach, but back home, that's not what they preached.
A lost memory
Sadness and Stress, is it for the best? Consuming my world in a false happiness. Is that what I need to really succeed? I don't feel any joy, all I feel is greed.
Her dreams are coming true, So long she has waited, She never imagined the things she had so longed for would be given unto her, She has always been a dreamer, She thought these dreams were just like the others;
I had my first cigarette
His kisses are tender, sweet but they reek of lust He undresses me and our eyes lock I feel that he is taking a journey into my soul but he is just wondering "Which hole?"
I remember the day clearly bewilderment, agony, pain I stepped outside, greeted by the harsh, bitter cold as if the weather knew by matching the very feelings I held to you
I'd love to scream
it powers the writer to write one more line it inspires the muscian to play one more time it rages the soldier to take that front it focuses the athlete
Mistress is just a pretty word,
I tend to think often about dandilions cacophonus shouts of color on distinctly green and freshly cut lawns chubby fingers uprooting sticky pipe stems charished flower buquets at the corners of smiles
An electric shock through your veins, steam seeping out your brains. Sound, musical bliss, nothing can compare to this soul mate.
Today I stand watching blank faces, Their sorrows hidden in between the spaces of their broken hearts. Shattered minds echo through these hallways, this supposed education, the proposed libation,
in the strawberry fields underneath the stars where i met my love moving too fast
It feels like a true fairytale. Like the ones your mom reads to you at bedtime. You're dreaming of walking through the dark green woods. Only lit up by the tiny fireflies buzzing around.
In my sleep I dreamt it was day.
You know, you weren't suppose to be here today. But then again, you were never suppose to show up. You just waltz into my dreams every night And make me feel hopelessly in love.
I know a boy who thinks too much
I and Pi personify and roll the die on you and I; We think, we speak, we spin, we creak, the beat is 2-pi, you and I, you-I, you-I, you-I, you-I, you-I
Society. It drives me. Family. They guide me. Money. It rules me. Fear. It consumes me. Hate. It alludes me. Desire. It fuels me.
DREAMS, Dreams of being up there, basking in the warmth of the spotlight. Dreams of finding myself, drowning in the applause of the audience. Dreams of letting go, finally being free to live out my hopes.
I only see you in my dreams though I look for you always when I'm walking down the street and in every crowd I look out hoping to see your face (dreading actually seeing you,
Dreams are like death, Don't know what you're gonna get. Hope or fear, Fear or hope? To feel the warmth of love and life, To fill our hopes, this is our life. Tick-tock tick-tock it all stops
If I could write away sorrow Let ink leach from the pen I hold Onto paper and create a landscape Where there was a barren wasteland And that landscape was an oasis And no one could fight in there
Talking is easy but I don’t speak Some of the most wonderful things grow from silence and solitude Loneliness is painful but I don’t weep
When I lay my weightDown on my nestMy heart will beat softlyDeep in my chestHer lips, it seemsWill kiss my dreamsAnd my eyes when liftWill see her; my special giftBeside me
As I lay here only thinking of you, I wonder
So, This poetry thing, It’s not really my deal. I’ve always been envious of you who can feel. Who can spell out emotions, be open and raw.
Darling I’d like to wish for some good dreams What a pleasant thing to do. Oh, Darling I’d wish for some good dreams But that’d mean leaving behind you.
My future is bright Although money is tight I have faith in my future Because I've already seen the light People may not believe now But I know they will see it then So many dreams
What if for one day you had the power to live out your dream? Think about a day to live out something you've always wanted to do. It could be anything from spending a day with your crush, to visiting J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth.
You told me once, "Don't let them weigh you down You can do anything." That was years ago, years before it happened And you vanished like vapor, right before my eyes
One day when we were young Owen asked me, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” “I don’t know,” I said. “I want to be an astronaut. It’d be so cool to go into outer space

with a tragedy like this, the heart can't find peace the days pile on and you try to move on no one can understand why you just have to comply with a tragedy like this a lot is amiss
beyond the creeping shadowswhere sleeping darkness liesI lie awake in wonder
Dreams and memories fuse together,
Dreams are stupid. I dont mean the
My dreams betray me,

Nothing is ever as it seems when
May it be, that all your dreams come true, when you whish on an even star. All your wishes have been heard, recorded and remembered for years to come. Never lose hope, never give up the fight.
You wake in a daze, unsure of your fate. You feel afraid, in a rather strange state. Where am I, you wonder aloud. How did I get to NYC, as you hurry through the crowd.
My dreams My dreams to go pro. To be the best player like, Lebron, Jordan and magic. My dreams to be an cop. The honor, the privilege to be something great.
The goddess of sleep and dreams Has beguiled me of you! She has robbed me of you completely.
A dream divineIs only a nightmareIf a thought is to blind beyondMeasures I often question such a beautifulCurse of a dreamIs it only a reality that we often wonder?
I pause to think. a second too late and the opportunity; gone. that fate might allow a genius to slip, the slip of a genius; the world's fate amiss. and tired my eyes fall heavy in sleep,
Don't give up. When roads are long, and paved with fears. When seconds turn to hours, and hours to years. When your dreams seem far and out of sight. And you paint on a smile,
I keep having dreams about you because in my dreams you would answer me every night, without fail I keep having dreams about you because you'd reply
Try as I may to avoid drama and fights
Living in this world sometimes disgusts me. How can I find the beauty in life with all these tragedies. They tell us to reach for the sky, but life tends to brings us back down.
An average dream usually only lasts a few seconds; sleeping that is. Dreaming while awake never leaves you, until it’s fulfilled Everybody has a dream. Everybody has a goal. Everybody has an opportunity.
