Most Important Dreams

Waking in the morning,

I’m out of bed

before my dreams fade

as they do everyday.

No alarm

just another day.

Nothing to do

but work and dream

the day away.

Say nothing to anyone

because I’m all alone in my room.

I dream while awake

and I dream at night

but the dreams that matter

the most to me

are the dreams

I’ve had so many years now…

Past Dreams

I close my eyes to the night,

imagine a memory

but it was only a dream

I once had

when I was young.

What do I recall

from those earlier times?

I was not always alone

but now it’s all I remember.


Please consider the Following:



I shed the things of my past

like baggage left

at a former house.

I see the changes

over time

like an evolution

of myself.

I feel the soft skin beneath

and the blood rushes.

Counting the stars

while wishing

these dreams

could ever be true.

I lay in bed wondering,

is this all there will ever be?

I keep hope

despite the odds.

Is this real living

or am I a captive of my dreams?

A dream is worth the waiting.

The hour comes to me,

late at night in my room,

with the urge to be aroused

when all I really want

is to go to bed.

Love is Love

but have I found it anywhere?

I can be alone

and satisfy myself

but what I really need

is someone to hold me at night

and tell me things are alright.

The house shakes with each gust of wind, the thunder echoing throughout the empty house, and I stare out into the dark wondering if I’ll ever see him again.

It was a minor disagreement that led to him storming out of the house. I could have stopped him from leaving but part of me was uncertain if I wanted him to remain. Now the part of me that remained silent misses him…

To Mr. C

You were alive

when I first read your words,

poems written

before I was born.

All of these things

I remember

from when I was so young.

Do you ever look back

and wonder what became

of the you back then

because you now

is so different

than you were ever before.

I watch the time,

sometimes it is slow

so much so that I wonder if this time will ever be over

and sometimes it’s faster

so much faster

that all of the milestones of life

pass you by.

I hear the bells ring,

singing my song tonight.

Time is my companion tonight,

we go back so far,

he’s always at my side.

Floating Through

I float through like I’m Casper.

I woke up alone again

trying to pretend

I’m doing better

but the pain don’t lie.

All of these words

to hide how I’m feeling.

Sunday morning,

time passing,

as I wonder if things will

always be this way.

I drift into the silence

uncertain of which direction

I’m heading.

Sometimes I have so much hope

but now all I have are doubts

about everything.

Shatter the Wall

I couldn’t imagine these nights,

like a castle in the sky

my dreams fill my mind

with plans for another hour,

these nights are not easy

because these are the nights

of waiting for something more.

Waiting for a dream

to be more than images

in my head,

waiting for the wall between,

my waking life

and the life of my dreams,

to shatter into fragments of mirrors.

Shadows on the wall

moving with the rhythm

of the music.

In my head is a world

so different

than this place.

I’m glad you cared enough

but where are you when

I cry alone at night?

At night I think of so many things

but all of these memories

overwhelm me with so many emotions

it’s hard to clear my mind.

Songs calm and focus me

as I write these words.

Can you hear the change in my voice

as I find my thoughts

unscrambled by the music?

My Muse is the night

Time for a little rest,

dream of something different.

It’s late and I need to go to bed

but my mind is eager

to write.

At night I like to write.

At night is when things come to me so clear.

These Words

I hear the music loud,

the rhythm in my ears

the words in my head,

and the things of my heart

coming out so loud.

It’s Saturday night dreaming of a road to travel,

escaping this prison of solitude

for the freedom of the open road.

Take me from this place

and let’s begin a new story.

My life is lame

but it was never my intention

to end up here alone.

Different Path

The time is passing,

nothing lasting forever

when you try to say

the words on your mind.

I feel your pain,

nothing holding us back

but the years of keeping it all inside.

Tonight I remember you,

do you remember me,

so many people that I think of

but where are they now?

If I ever knew you

don’t think I left you

because I never meant to leave

anyone behind

life moved me forward

and your path was

different from mine.

TV Shows

I trace my history

through the images upon the television screen,

moments in life

corresponding with the shows I would watch…

Caged Love

As the last ray of light

hits the horizon

I see you in my dreams

once again.

My hands shake

like they did

those many

years ago

in your bedroom.

Have I ever loved anyone

as I loved you then?

I close my eyes

to the truth,

these days will be

harder than planned.

I can feel it changing,



Please consider the Following:



A million questions

inside of my head,

sitting while you were

going down,

closing my eyes

to what’s real

for a dream.

I close my eyes

to it all

when things are tough,

I imagine things are better

but I wonder if

things will ever be better…




Some of these Dreams…

I shake the dreams,

some nightmares

never go away.


Please consider the Following:



I’m alone again

with the memory of when

things were easier

but when was it ever easy

to be me?

I looked up to the stars

to dreams long forgotten

when I was younger.
