~ Novacaine ~

If all is grey,

then name me ghost.

We hurt the ones we love

the most.

And in the shadows’ mist

be seeming,

all that was,

is worth redeeming.

Winds of change

will ever shift,

so formless,

in the fog I drift.

The tears have dried

and in their place,

exists a hollow,

empty space.

All I wanted was love,

and chased my dream,

till dreaming died

in a silent scream.

And though this timid heart

be torn,

to follow it,

I’m damned and sworn.

Ever doomed

to seek the Dance,

yet never having

half a chance.

But all be numb

and fade away,

for feeling, emotion,

died this day.

Only hope will get me by,

and novacaine

be just a lie.

Peace, oh frightened heart


just bring my true love

back again.

For only answers

cloaked in time,

will quench the fire

and quell the rhyme.

To this, I have

no answers yet.

I only want one thing:

to keep my Ka-tet….

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
