Never leave me Dreamless

by Yakari Gabriel   May 24, 2012


Lord,

let rain pour over me,
and give my lungs a run
for their life, let them
gasp for air, so
I'm reminded of those
times, I wished
I did not breathe at all.

leave me
stranded on the side
of the ocean, on a dark night,
with the waves
crashing like bad memories
on my feet.

give me,
a punch in the stomach
and a chronic headache
a balding head, and crooked
teeth..

but,
never allow my
heart to become
the tombstone of dead dreams.
never let them become corpses
rotting in the inside of my being,

relive them
whenever they start thinning
Lord, feed them with faith
again and again.

never let my
soul dreamless, Lord.

Do not let
me go through life
unfulfilled and unaccomplished..

..because that, that I wouldn't withstand.

    Comment from judging:

    I voted for this poem last week and feel it still gets a vote this week. A very emotional poem that I really can't put into words how it makes me feel. I just connected to this piece in ways not all poetry grabs you. It's strong and captivating, and I really hope to see it on the front page!

    and

    The sadness, the pain, but the vivid hope is what makes this poem for me. The author shows such dispair and it's vague enough that everyone can relate to it, but in the end always putting it in God's hands is what will guide you. I think this is a beautiful piece and I absolutely love the imagery portrayed here. I could go on for hours about this poem, it's one I've read a few times now and I'm just blown away by the maturity and wisdom in this poem. Fantastic.

    Yaki,

    WOW. Awesome title!!!

    I love the way you have opened up this poem. The first stanza blew me away completely.

    It's like you need to have something washed over you to clean your aura and make you feel again.

    The whole poem is filled with emotions and I can feel them. I love that about your work.

    Awesome write Yaki
