Journey To The Realm Of Dreams

Not to sleep, but to enter the realm of dreams

That’s why I’m here

My body needs rest; I feel the fatigue in my joints and bones

But my mind, it craves a journey

The excitement builds as I prepare; this night a new destination

Restless competing emotions

From the moment I cradled the phone it was apparent

Your voice, my voice, our voices

Tender words, soft as pure water, silky and sensual

Flowing and overflowing

I am both consumed and silenced by the mental recall

Restlessly awaiting slumber

Tomorrow is too distant; my needs overwhelming, if only a word

Speaking spiritually

Take me someplace where the waters never stop their rushing

Thoughts propel my vision

Share space with me, warmth of the sun on our faces

Eyes growing heavy

Sing to me your songs of life; tales of hope and love and happiness

Ethereal feeling of weightlessness

Quench my thirst with your essence; my cup has no bottom

Floating and submerging

The pool of your life-force, beckoning my physical form

Savoring the embrace

Our minds find unity, our souls embrace their prophecy

Perfect match

Each whole but a part, now part of the whole

No spaces between lines

The entirety of love; beyond the structural definitions of humankind

Apart yet together

Reaching out across the universe with clarity of direction

Internal navigation

Passionate moments, touching, tasting, lost in your eyes

Cardinal directions

Each point a terminus that guides our hearts together

Colors everywhere

Surrounding and soaking into each pore, each molecule

Nightshine, dayshine, evershine

Light in the darkness, awake while asleep, travelling while resting

Two souls in unison

No border shall encumber us, no moment offer betrayal

Portals, pathways, trajectories

Clarity of consciousness our assurance of no encumbrance

Love shared in dreams

And in the morning, we shall reminisce about the moments

Journey ending, another beginning

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.

    Oh such a lovely verse, Ralph. The spiritual realm of dreams is a beautiful place to be. It is where one can journey and find joy and peace. I love your poem. Very nicely penned and emotive. Well done.

    We can lose ourselves in deams of love, Ralph, and hope upon all hope that when we wake such dreams have become reality. Alas, that is rarely the case, but true love in life can often carry over into our dreams as well which is wonderful, as is your verse.
