Forgetting My Dream

Poem By Emily Angel

A beautiful dream you are,
Yet I know not what to do.
My heart is in a tumult.
I die for an answer.

Truth, yes, it’s bitter
But let me at least know
The bitterness that should be.
Can’t see through this fog
Or breath in this flood.

I feel like a fish
Gasping for breath on land.
I took shelter in
The dark of the night
Seeking refuge from
My disturbing enemy.

Little did I know
My worst enemy was
Inside of my brain.
It had captured my
Thoughts and my dreams.

And I, its pathetic victim
Have no way out.
I begged and whined
But to no effect.

I try forgetting you,
My dream so beautiful.
Yet, you turned out to be
Too beautiful to be
Forsaken forever.

Comments about Forgetting My Dream

Interesting psychological depth to a common experience. Promising :)
Beautiful poem, well written. 'Too beautiful to be forsaken forever' how amazing, beautiful work.
A very elegant use of both light and shade. Well done.
So nicely written. Full of emotion. Dreams are there to be realised. We cannot realise them all however. Keep on dreaming, I am sure reality will be on your side soon.
Nice poem, so real the words are well chose. And i love the setting....

Never have I told myself
Life is but milk and roses.
I daren't dream

An Advice

Look into your hearts, O men,
And count the good things
You ever thought for your fellow beings.

I Love Him

How could this be?
What a sweet sensation can
All of this be?

Let Me Love You

You keep my light burning bright
Even in my darkest night.

You have me safe in your arms,


I'm drenched by the rain,
Yet I'm not cold.
For I'm freezing inside
Of my heart.
