About the Poem

This poem was written to express my sadness of loving someone to a great extent and not having the same level of emotion returned. For this reason we could not be together as I wanted to receive the same as that which I gave him, all of my innermost feelings, the contents of my heart and soul. For me it was painful beyond what I had ever imagined. This is the very first poem I have written as it is the first time I have felt strongly enough about anything to write something like this and have just built up the courage to have other people read it!

Watching My Dreamer Dream

I hear a sigh in my sleep
. . . it awakens me
I turn to see what it could be
. . . it's you I hear stirring in your sleep
I watch you as you sink again
Your head into the softness there below
A jet of light illuminates your cheek
As if to say to kiss you there
Instead I watch you while you sleep
And dream the dreams which you seek
I wonder what those dreams could be
Since dreams and reality converged to this
. . . for me

I wish to be in those dreams
. . . then maybe I could be
What you seek, which is kept secret from me
. . . and are only in my dreamer's dreams
