until i wake

you haunt me
surreal are
the images of you
in the mist
where time does not exist

you are a secret
which lies beneath the reason
i’m scared to tell

i am me now and everything in between
not the you i once was

still, i ask you
stay with me until i wake

After that, use them to create a poem, short fiction, prose, haiku or anything you can think of and link them in using the comment panel on this post:

    Note that you don’t have to be a poet or blogger in order to do it but a link to where your work can be seen by other audiences. Do ask your friends to join in the fun as well!^_^
