WHAT DREAMS MAY COME

The realm of darkness doesn't give any signs that it has boundaries. I wander pathless in this rayless world. It seems the bright sun has been extinguished. I wonder if my destitute of vision is a reality. It was not another ordinary night. In this desolation, my heart was chilled by the selfish prayer of the light. Soon I became conscious of the fact that I wasn't breathing at all.

I hear a faint voice. I run in that direction ,cognizant of the fact that it would be my last hope. My belief was boosted when I saw a vague radiance. There is a woman in a wedding dress,
ensconced in an armchair, whimpering, resting her face on her hands. She was the only thing glowing in this isolated pitch darkness. I try to come closer but I can't.

A hand grips her shoulder from behind but I can't see even the contours of the man. She looks up to him with her bright judgmental eyes ,embellished by the pearl-like tear drops. I could see that he was holding his horn-rimmed glasses but the light still couldn't encompass his face even as he draws closer to her. He murmurs ," I could sit here and shed tears with you but the world won't let me be a kid."

He turns around to walk away, folding up the hem of the shirt around his right arm. It became visible that he has a scar of 6 stitches near his elbow. They are the same as mine.

good way of expressing your dreams..!! keep it up bro..
There are stuffs you must really miss out during childhood days..may be the thoughts of "I should've done that" must be haunting you.
Anyway, keep posting.. keep rocking..:)

Well I was trying to underline the fact that the world gradually erodes away every childlike attribute within ourselves as time passes ,with that line - the world wont let me be a kid.Be it being gullible,ingenuous, spontaneous,trustful , simple,whatever it is.

Its nice to receive some complements for a change :)
