dreams and reality...

when you're quiet
the noise maddens
like in the thunder
the bolt lightens

the calm before it
and the disastrous aftermath
stranded on a lonely mountain
facing nature's wrath

so cold dark rains
it rains fear,anger n tragedy
flashes of the past come and go
bring out the pain and agony

faces emerge out of rain
they laugh and grin
make me look pitiful
look at my love as a dreadful sin

the forest fires
have burned down the life
ash and smoke is everywhere
pyres have burned even the afterlife

now rains have taken over
to washaway the leftovers of past
of burning dreams and last hopes

the yearn in the eyes hasn't died
but light is gone, now darkness casts

thoughts don't leave
soul doesn't stay
when in the middle of a dream
you make your way

it was a dream on
but now its turning into reality
i lovingly called you rains and light
now just portraying their brutality

the rains and its unpredictability
hurts the lives and sentiments
the clear waters turns turbid
the giggles turn to pitiful laments

an uninvited rain hurts
as an unconnected love
broken string and burned feathers
you killed that lovely white dove...

Very nice poem, Fallen Poet (is that what you prefer to be called)? There is truth in your writing, it is often hard to tell where the dream ends and the reality begins.

Thank you for your comment on my article at suite101; I am glad you enjoyed my post there.

You mentioned that you are having trouble getting reads on your poems; are you a member of a poet's community? If you aren't, or are unhappy with the one you are in, may I suggest the one I use; It is an interactive community where poets are encouraged to read each others work, and to join in competitions that other poet's like you and I come up with. I have over 1000 poems posted there, and have received over 4000 comments.

It's free, so try it, you might like it :). I'll be looking forward to hearing more from you soon.
