Dreams that become you – Sewuese Leah Anyo

I have made peace with myself

I may never find you

who completes my story

Countless words I’ve curved

Sent on the wings of the travelling winds

 

I have tried to breathe again

Hoping to have you with me in time

Not while I’m dead to the silent world…

To feel the breath of your life

To be lost in the charms of your beauty

 

A thousand miles I have trekked

Searching for mine

A thousand injuries I have nursed

Your heart searching for mine

 

Look, my love, look at all these many scars

The summary of tales I’m dying to tell

While we lie side by side in petals

Staring deeply into eyes that only love can light

 

I want to count all my dying heartbeats

But I do not even know what numbers are

And that is how I know I need you here soon

That is how I know I miss you with all that I am

 

Let my whispered words caress your ears today

Reach out your palms and touch me, smoother…

One moment within your embrace is better than

A million kisses where my heart finds no home

 

I have made a resolution

If I never find you, I’d never hold another

I want the world to know this.

  1. Aw! These lines entrance though they be deeply saddening and constitute what pretty fantastical expectations and daydreams are made of; they’re simply ethereal and sure to take one’s breaths away…spellbinding!πŸ˜‡πŸ˜„

    The Narrator oughta hold out on hope still! Home’s where the heart is and till home’s found; we’re as rolling stones and drifters; wandering aimlessly! Plus, for as many as are meant to be…. they will be! ‘Que sera, sera’! And as long as what you want wants you right back; then there’s a fighting chance to beat life at its own game and come out tops…victorious!

    The author made some crazy magic with this poetic composition, many kudos and thanks for sharing Sagely One! 😁

      Mmhmm, so true your words. I felt the longing and want evoked by the poetic persona. sad that we always have to keep searching till we find home…
      too many things bother the spirit. We can only pray that time will heal all words and give us life. amen.

  2. I thoroughly love this. Reminds me of 2 songs from my all time favorite Don Williams. Here it goes

    Title: I’m still looking for you.
    DON WILLIAMS

    Love comes once they say
    If it’s the real thing
    Me I feel that way
    Knowing you must be there
    Waiting for me somewhere
    Some people say that I’m a fool
    But I’m still looking for you.

    Yes, I guess it’s sad the lovers I’ve been through
    Some I could have had
    But they never were enough
    Nobody measures up
    Lovers and friends I’ve had a few
    But I’m still looking for you.

    Maybe it’s wrong, I don’t know
    Maybe I’m just chasing rainbows
    But its gotta be for ever when I fall
    But lately my hopes have been sinking
    Lately, I find I’ve been thinking
    Maybe you’re not really there at all.

    Tears and years go by and I haven’t found it
    Seems the dream should die
    But I hang on somehow
    Still I keep reaching out
    With all the loves that I’ve been through
    I’m still looking for you

    Now I know there’s someone somewhere in one corner of the country or globe who’s saying something like the second song:

    Title : If love gets there before I do

    Another twenty miles and I’m halfway there
    Another twenty miles and I’m runnin’ scared
    It’s a beautiful night and I should be there
    But I left you too long goin’ who knows where.

    I know you’re tired of waiting and I know you’re tired of hesitating
    If love gets there before I do, darling don’t you take it
    You know I’m on my way to you as fast as I can make it
    There’s danger in the summer moon, don’t think there’s nothing to it
    If love gets there before I do, darling, don’t you do it, no don’t you do it.

    I know you’re hearing lines from those other guys
    Tryin’ to wear you down under starry skies
    But you know that I want you to just hold on
    What a shame if I get there and you are gone.

    I know you’re tired of waiting and I know you’re tired of hesitating
    If love gets there before I do, darling don’t you take it
    You know I’m on my way to you as fast as I can make it
    There’s danger in the summer moon, don’t think there’s nothing to it
    If love gets there before I do, darling, don’t you do it, no don’t you do it.

    If love gets there before I do, darling don’t you take it
    You know I’m on my way to you as fast as I can make it
    There’s danger in the summer moon, don’t think there’s nothing to it
    If love gets there before I do, darling, don’t you do it, no don’t you do it.

    1. What really is love? Does it really stay in a certain way, remaining with us or is it something that gets us worse? Let’s pray that love comes, stays and remains… Else, we perish in this chaos of belief! But oh well, let us perish if we must. We believe.
