Dreams (Sonnet No. 2 repost)

by Kate Demeree

For me there is no sleep tonight
No more escape in dream. Reality
My heart must seek in this dawnÂ’s cruel light.
And if alone I must forever be,
To walk along this forgotten lane,
Then let the fog gather shroud my form.
Its cold blanket now become the bane
Of my existence. In memories warm
Glow you will live forever buried deep
Inside of the tomb where once a true heart
Dared to chance, take in faith, the leap
Then within a ghostly fires glow, the start
Of a journey one could never forget
Give me fog until this cruel sun is set

give the fog a chance. to be rapt in it, who knows, perhaps it is the greatest love there ever was and gentle. your words spade deep into the heart and soul and not for naught they dig, but they would seek rapture of no treasure that one could not spend in one lifetime or in one blissful moment.

Such courage to peek your head above the fog standing on a sonnet. Thanks for sharing. These moments are so fruitful when someone like you has the grit to write right in the midst of the darkness. You DO pierce the heart with this one, Kate.
