In My Dreams #glisten #writephoto

(For visually challenged writers, the image shows a twilit beach, the sea shimmering in the low light. There are rocky islets silhouetted against the water and what might be a figure, running towardsโ€ฆor away from the waves.)

 

 

a sparkling light reflected
upon my dreams
as I chase you down
the crashing tides
the raging waves
my heart keeps racing
as my troubled thoughts
began to settle
upon the sight
of your reflection,
just a reflection
of a memory
for in my sleep
a light glistens
a reality awakens
that you remain
a figment in my dreams
a shadow in the dark
a memory in the past
and never my reality

    I think a sigh is needed at the end of this heart longing poem! So well written, Mich! That sparkle of light that keeps our hopes and memories alive even as our reality speaks to a different outcome.
