    "Dreams poem contest" - "Dreams like these" by "Shionoro"

    No matter how much I resist, i fall asleep.

    I see monsters, chasing me.
    I see men, plotting against me.
    I see loved ones, glancing at me with hatred in their eyes.

    But it was just a dream and I am alone.
    I sigh deeply.
    Dreams like these are going to kill me some day.

    No matter how much I resist, I fall asleep.

    I see my best friend from childhood, wandering with me in the woods.
    I see my first love, kissing me like only a first love can.
    I see a stranger, having such a good time with me that it feels like we have known each other forever.

    But it was just a dream and I am alone.
    I sigh deeply,.
    Dreams like these are going to kill me some day.

    "Dream" - "On the Roof of Your Car" by riki
    Comments:
    I used the definitions of "aspirations" and "wild fancy" of dream. Full version of the poem can be found HERE.
    As we sat on the roof of your car
    and gazed at the stars above,
    I thought how lucky I am
    to be with the one I love

    and marveled about
    the possibility of
    you and I

    Of a happy life
    through laughter and tears
    Gathering with friends
    and loved ones so dear

    Of exploration
    and opportunities
    Traveling the world
    and learning new things

    Of growing old together
    Sharing our ups and downs
    until the end of our time

    But that can all wait
    For we still have time

    As you lean your head against my shoulder
    and your fingers interlocked with mine,
    I am just content
    with having you by my side

    Let your dreams be bigger than your fears
    Your actions stronger than your speaking.
    Believe in your dreams and they will may be true,
    Believe in yourself and surely , they will be true.

    It is never too late to fix yourself a goal
    Neither to have a dream.
    That is why kids have always a goal
    It is because they have dreams.

    Don't dream your life,
    Live your dream,
    Because you don't live in the past,
    You don't dream of the future,
    You are in the present.

    You always desired power,
    You always had power in your dreams
    You wanted to be the strongest,
    You were always the strongest in your dreams
    You wanted friends to be happy with,
    You had friends only in your dreams
    But now, you need to wake up
    And realize your dreams
    To make it reality.

    Didn't know what to say so i guess it's all I can do...:arf
    It's my first time writing a poem :ttgl
    Enjoy this, and make your dreams reality :kamina

    Dare to Dream by Organizized

    Dare I dream the dream,
    the dream without you in it
    Dare I leave you to the waking world,
    as I fall into the night
    As I let my mind take flight,
    do the same
    Forget my name, my face
    Find yourself a place I’ve never seen,
    never been
    A place in which I don’t belong,
    In which I don’t exist
    A place in which we never kissed

    Dare to dream
    And dream without me
    For I'll remain right here

    And should I wake, only to find
    your eyes closed, lips in a smile
    I’ll know, up here you’re always mine;
    And what's down there, you'll leave behind

    So I’ll let you dream, be free a while


    Comments: Haven't written a poem since I was 14 or something.. Might read a bit strange, but I'm pretty happy with it.
    This comes from accepting that everyone needs escape from time to time.

    Dreamworld

    The longings of my heart hide here
    The fears of my life reside here
    I can see what I feel
    And it's radiance is upon me
    Every secret is unsealed
    Even while alone I'm not lonely
    This mysterious place will pass
    And shall return in all its different ways
    And It shall remain in all my days
    I know what I have seen
    No words can describe where I have been
    Like a child, innocent, pure and free to explore
    Like the sun glowing on the crystallised sea shore
    A world emerges that releases all the different keys
    To all the different personalities
    That hide inside me
    Peculiar scenes can arise
    Yes, the strangest of wonderlands
    I may meet a sudden knight
    Who will fight me then shake my hand
    So my dearest friend?
    Where have you been?
    In your dreamworld together, what shall we see?
    Let us walk together into this angelic dream world of yours,
    I wonder how much it shall differ from mine?
    I long to see your world and enjoy with you,
    the world you leave at night

    Comments: I dreamed that I saw the real life rouge from fairytail and he was dating taeyeon from snsd: idk why? :)

    Dream poem contest
    My Dream by natsulucy


    I lie on the field
    And air-swept basswood yield
    Their fragrance and perfume makes my heart filled with blushful Hippocrene

    .
    I saw a lover and his beloved playing in the meadow happily
    their love is pure
    The bee hives are brimming with honey and a beautiful river runs beside me.


    The water of which fills your heart with heavenly beauty.
    I saw fairies and elfs in the air
    with tranquil peace i become pleased
    But suddenly i woke up and discovered myself in my bed in this heartless world.


    But i know if you love HIM and others then you will get love and my dream will come true.



    Comments: As i am a student of English literature and doing my Masters it helped me a lot in creating it.Hope you enjoy it.

    Nobody Else by WithYouInSpirit

    [​IMG]
    Nobody else understands,
    Nobody else will ever know,
    Nobody else can ever be,
    The things that I see.

    Nobody else will care,
    Nobody else is aware,
    Nobody else can compare,
    To the things that I see.

    Those things are dreams…

    These dreams are mine,
    And all mine I know,
    You cannot see them,
    You have not atoned.

    So remember one thing,
    And one thing alone,
    You can always join me,
    You don’t have to be alone.

    Cast aside the darkness,
    And set yourself free,
    For there will always be someone,
    Right there in your dreams...

    Feel free to listen to this track while reading if you so desire

    I literally came up with this one on the spot so I hope it's not too bad.

    Comments - perhaps this is a uncommon dream, but I look forward to seeing someone I lost many years ago.

    Dream Poem Contest - "Face" by 秋本 Akira

    paint me a picture of white acropolis
    winding black ivy pen sketched
    in the night;

    the afternoon glaze
    and the mid-morning haze
    intertwined with the dusky frame
    right in heart of the winter north woods

    and the scent of the green lady forest
    in marble all bent into
    faceless white spirit,
    spy right through you, dreamer,

    see the lingering hopes
    that haunt your left shoulder,
    that haunted your eyes,

    so you cast them away
    and brought in your
    dark curtained chamber,
    and day after day you

    sketched tears on her face,
    sketched tears washed them clean
    and the white salted angel's
    green eyes were not seen anymore.

    Comments- Hello there! Here's my blog: http://lampteacupoverthinking.wordpress.com/
    Do take a look. Cheers!

    Dream Poem- A lost soul by Holt

    The golden moon bathes me in its fiery radiance
    I glimpse the silver sun lost among the clouds
    There's something wrong with this scenery so I must fix it

    I reach for the golden light and snuff it's brilliance in my palms
    This is my world and I cannot stand it's arrogance
    Here everything bows to me and exist solely for my purpose

    Then I see it, a little figure, small and insignificant
    A trespasser in my domain
    An existence without my permission
    I resolve to destroy it like the golden moon
    But I cannot reach it.

    As far as I run, as far as I stretch,
    It lies a hair beyond my grasp.
    I'm frustrated and it mocks me
    It ridicules my world, and denies it's reality
    My rage is beyond measure
    But his words strike deep

    I can feel my consciousness returning.
    I can feel the world beckoning
    Yet I will fight to remain here
    Because I have no place in that cruel place
    A god here, but there, just another insignificant being
