magnetic poem

Think sleep, friend, and ask why you truly fall into it.

Do you escape the wake?
Do you visit the familiar?
Do you stay because you are afraid to leave,
or leave because you fear staying behind?

Essential shadows rob some goddesses of their dream.

Some steal your sun,
some comfort the lonely.
Are you the goddess they seek?
If you look too hard, they will disappear.
Dream sweetly, my goddess, and let your shadow listen.

When you dream, do you hear the colors in your mind?

I love in whispers,
languid and delirious,
beneath my dreams.

I shine on your beauty,
and soar through these black moments.
Yet, the wind will blow in my face.
Guide me through.

I lust behind her music,
her gorgeous power.
I am a frantic ship in a winter storm.
She is a petal, the light I see.
Her skin is smooth and bare,
a wanted picture
that I keep in my mind.

The thousand weakest shadows will not cover me.

'When you dream, do you hear the colors in your mind?'

What a beautiful thought! Such abstract an emotion caught so beautifully and in such simple words!
This poem brings to my mind the words..'simplicity is the essence of beauty'

I love in whispers,
languid and delirious

I really like the way you have presented the options in this one,

"Do you escape the wake?
Do you visit the familiar?
Do you stay because you are afraid to leave,
or leave because you fear staying behind?"

Also really liked, "When you dream, do you hear the colors in your mind?". For the same reason as Pincushion talks about in her comment.

I agree with A. These lines caught my attention, and made me question the reasons I feel stuck in some dreams. You have a way of seeing inside her soul. Wow!
