~ The Farthest Shore ~

If I could reach the Farthest Shore,

and sail the infinite seas of Forever,

I’d close my memory on Death’s cold door,

and put heart and soul into every endeavor.

If I could stop these tears that fall,

escape this torturous, self-imposed cage,

I’d gather each one, and save them all,

to drown the pain with an unfeeling rage.

Always striving for the light through the veil,

always reaching for what I can’t have.

And this human condition almost assures that I’ll fail,

while hope acts as a sedative salve.

Where is the angel to grant me cold solace?

Where now, is the armored, white knight?

Where is the one who can answer all this?

Can anyone make the wrongs right?

I ask, and yet, they always run.

Afraid of a woman like me.

Scared of my honesty, accepted by none.

Yet, I know not what else I can be….

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.
