A Quote from Poe

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.

Never let your dreams fade away. Dreams are more than moving images that pass the time when we sleep. Dreams are all we have when today fades into tomorrow, they are the hope that allows us to keep going.

I couldn’t help myself from putting the next quote in as well, for it is truly beautiful.

Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.

Edgar Allan Poe

Here’s a link to Edgar Allan Poe’s poems

Medicated

Medicated

Raging at the wall,

the backpack,

my own mind.

Heartbeat shattering

my bruised knuckles.

Both hearts break

when he asks his favorite

question:  Did you take

your medication?

Teeth grinding

for patience curls

the answering yes

into a curse.

One little pill holds

my smile, my hope.

Thirty days waiting

in one bottle.

An alternate reality

balanced in my palm.

Kaleidoscope futures for yes

even more for no.

Half full glass pushed

into my other hand.

Cold cup on my lips,

melting ice in my mouth.

Hold the decision

with my mind,

twirl it in circles

on my tongue.

His watch yells beside me

voicing his thoughts,

erasing my own.

Time isn’t measured,

it is lost.

Decide, swallow…

smile.
