Saffie makes me cry with her raw, sad pieces- This week she did just that and more with her very pretty, song like crafting of this poem.. I sang it while reading.
Longing to fly away, the depths of sadness can be felt in each line...
This is something different from Saffie, it really reads like a flowing song... very unique and drenched in emotions.. Powerful piece this week!
A landscape of dreams
stirs my imagination
in the stillness of a lonely night.
^^I simply like this opening. A landscape of
dreams just brings on such an interesting image to
my mind and that too on a lonely night. It really
sets the scene as well as the writer's mood preparing
the reader for what is to come.
As the poem unfolds it feels like one is afloat in the
dark sea while memories of loved ones haunt the
writer's world. The thought of surviving without
them creates a heaviness one can't let go. I also
like the repetition of "take me away, take me afar,
take me to the place where my loved ones are"
There is a beautiful sadness to this and is also
haunting. What kept coming to my mind was the
image of a siren who calls all to their demise. A
vivid, beautiful, sad and haunting read!
