Was it a dream?
The beauty, the mountains, the lake
Was it a dream?
Constant happiness, joy, no stress
Was it a dream?
Dark brown eyes looking so sweetly into mine
Was it a dream?
But then above the clouds I fly…
Can we ever keep a dream
Or will it always die
And make us search once again
Not knowing for what and why?
Embrace the world
Feel the joy of breathing
Fresh air in your lungs
Broaden your horizons
Notice the infinite possibilities
Spreading in front of you
Every single day
We are here for a moment
So why not have some fun?
Play with life
And spread your love around
Share your heart
With all the creatures of God
Smile and have a laugh
Don’t waste your life being sad
Do what you want
Be whoever you want to be
Choose your destiny
Have the courage to live
If you don’t let the rules suffocate you
If you don’t let anyone kill your dreams
You will see that the world is a miracle
And every second is worth living
In the middle of the night so dark
The snow started falling from the sky
The sky was the colour of black coal
I woke up thinking whether I wanted him to know
I looked out the window into the depths of the world
The brilliance of the shapes deeply touched my soul
And I thought how beautiful and simple life could be
If one was born a star or a snowflake shaped so mysteriously
The night would have been a dark blanket of life
The world – indifferent in view of such short existance
Then why is it so, I sadly asked my thoughts
That I can’t choose the life I want so badly?
The night brightened as if in response
A tear froze on my cheek awaiting
For the day that was about to creep into my solitude
Gray, yet no longer black in its nature
When a thunder broke the sunny day in half,
I was dreaming with my eyes fixed on the empty sky.
Oh, was it empty when I’ve fallen asleep,
Now dark carpet covered it.
The anxiety came with the colour of deep blue,
My dreams clouded with nightmarish glow,
The depth of the soul uncovered sharply,
Found myself begging for mercy of the black king
‘Oh Lord, bring back the sweetness of a thought!’
My dream – a nightmare,
Emptiness filled with pain
Of a heart longing for answers,
For questions not to remain.
Suddenly the wind blew taking a page away.
The page of the book of life danced its way to the grave.
In the muddy puddle the words were lost,
Never to be rediscovered,
Never to be written again.
‘Oh, dear Lord, is that what I was heading for?’
Still no secrets uncovered,
I’m standing in the middle of a storm.
Leaving the world with a smile on his face
Flew the spirit on the chilly winter’s embrace
‘Goodbye my tricky life
Go on with your unexpected dive
The space is waiting with its mysteries
So many roads to choose with no limits’
He knew the sweetness of blossoming trees,
The kisses of love, the pleasure he would miss
But the joys of the Earth were not enough
He wanted so much more to discover on his path
What he did – a lunacy, that’s what they called it
A mourning crowd was an illusion in not that little bit
The emptiness he did not feel anymore
When he realised he had it all in his hands, his proper lore
He left his cat, the rain and depressing fall
And then he announced, ‘’tis my final call’
Falling down the stairs
Rivers of blood
Red and black
Flowing right with it
The vision changes
I’m in the sand
Out of blue sand
There come manlike creatures
Surrounding me, disintegrating me
From the orange sky
Sky in flames
Now find the meaning
If you told me that my eyes shine brighter than stars on the night sky
And my lips are sweeter than the best cherry pie,
If you held my face in your strong hands
And looked at me as though on me it all depends,
If your lips formed a smile every time you thought of me
And if you promised just there to be,
If you whispered two words like you meant them
And kissed me delicately instead of giving me a gem,
I would know that one thing, believe that it’s true,
I would know that my heart belongs to you.
I’d like to thank for the following award from the Thursday Poets Rally:
A maggot crawling down your cheek
An owl hunting behind the window
You can’t sleep
The lights have gone off
But the world around still visible
Dreams just won’t come
The sounds so silent yet so sharp
The music’s playing in this night
No – the nightmare won’t visit either
You turn from side to side
Try to watch TV – there’s a late night fight
Eyes don’t close, they can’t
First rays appear on the horizon
The alarm clock has suddenly gone off
Oh, sweet sleep – it comes
Now you can’t wake up
When the morphine of your love fills my veins
And sweet scent of myrrh caresses my nostrils
My eyes close in the myriad of dying sunbeams
And my mind knows it is the time for it to be a guide
Helplessly drifting through lonely streets
Hanging on every pleasant thought
With a thousand colors and dreams around me
I’d do anything to be permitted to stay
But reality wakes me all over again
And reality shows me it’s always the same
The reality scares me in its cold disdain
Still I keep on finding my way back
I sail away and dream of my perfect land
So come and sleep
Come and dream
With me, oh dream
The world can always wait
There was a closed door.
But people wanted more
Than they could see.
Once the duke said, ‘I implore
You to finally open that hapless door.’
No one dared from the assembly.
‘Got to see what we can score!
We want more than our lore,
We want never – ending glee!’
Then the key was found, so small.
‘Does it match the big keyhole?
Let us try and see!’
Squeaked the hinge as people roared,
‘Now it’s opened, that door,
And who did it? – we!
Now let’s see what we’ve come for.
Oh, some will have to crawl
Under our feet!’
Then the light from behind the door
Dazzles muzzles as they grow
And turn profoundly green.
Greedy trolls, now they should know
What that ghastly punishment is for!
Nothing – you all mean
Without your soul,
Without that door,
Nothing else will make your heart beam.
