The Dreamers: New Poem

The Spider Lady  Cover

 

We were sad, restless dreamers in a restless age
In innocence and wonder we gazed at the beauty of the world
While all the world around us rushed blindly on
in waste and self destructiveness
We took the time to watch the sun go down
Now all these years have come and gone
And I sit here alone on a magic night
The wind is warm and dry
The dusk is purple
And the innermost longings of my soul
Wash over me slowly in a gentle wave
Warming me and soothing me and reminding me
of the child who dreamed of love
The child who is the real me
Who always was
Yes, we are just friends
But the machinations of the greedy world tore us apart!
Expectations, lust and fame
But all those things were for nothing
Just beautiful sunsets that were missed
As we hurried and fretted our young lives away
“All I want is a place in the sun!” I cried!
And the world mockingly laughed like a sorry, old crone in
reply
We were sad, restless dreamers in a restless age
In innocence and wonder we gazed at the beauty of the world
