DreamLost

Standard
Darkness filters through the mist…
The journey once begun
Now lay abandoned…
Frozen in a moment of time…
Trapped between unreal dreams
And silent reality…
Asleep in the branches of life…
Consoled by the promise
Of dreams’ sweet lies…
Twisted in the winds of delusion…
Unknowingly once lost
The trail left behind…
Reality distantly calls out
But the voice is drowned
By dreams’ roaring tide…
Lost…
      Twisting…
Fading…

About Denise Callaway

I started writing in the 5th grade and have folders of bits and pieces dating back nearly that far. Wonderful teachers encouraged me along the way, from allowing me to take my spelling word sentences and write a story instead to posting pictures for a free write on a regular basis. On those pictures, I often look for some obscure detail, sometimes imagined off the picture to develop into the story idea. As I grew into my teenage years, I continued to write and added poetry to my list. Throughout college and during my adult life, I've continued writing: short stories, poetry, and even a few articles for Yahoo! Voices before they shut down that venue. I do have longer works in process and I hope to one day unveil them to you all. Until that day comes, I hope you enjoy these tasty tidbits I delight in sharing with you.
