the long search

When you have nowhere to go, go back to yourself.

In Sleep

Somewhere deep

Where no voice can stir it awake

Where no hand can reach

Lies a dream

Somewhere deep

Where hope does not gleam

Where life does not seem

Lies a dream

Somewhere deep

The dream lies in its sleep…...

So beautiful, Soul.

Are you the author?

Keshi 10 September 2009 at 11:17  

will it ever be awakened? Should it, or is it better for it to sleep forever and remain as a dream?

Lovely. I really liked this one. u r one great writer Soul!

Heyy hi, Agnes. Good to see you back here.

Unfortunately, I am the author (if I can be called one). Thank you so very much.


Talking To My Soul 10 September 2009 at 13:31  


I have no clue if it will ever awake. I dont know if it should. Till then it will remain in its deep sleep, and remain a dream.

Thank you, dear. Happy to see you here.

That was so beautiful...!!!

Have a great week, brother! :)


Liara Covert 16 September 2009 at 20:42  

Sleep is that period of wakefulness that slowly jogs deeper levels of timeless memory. The sketch is delightful and the sentiments tender and reassuring.

Talking To My Soul 16 September 2009 at 21:24  


Thank you, bro, for the good words.

Thanks for visiting.

You have a good week too.


Talking To My Soul 16 September 2009 at 21:26  


The subconscious level of the mind is never asleep, I believe.

Thank you for reading, Liara. I am so glad you liked it.


Just call me 'A' 17 September 2009 at 06:11

Rick 17 September 2009 at 09:03  

Nicely crafted, my friend. Well done.

Talking To My Soul 17 September 2009 at 12:35  


Ha! Ha! Poetry and me! You gotta be kidding, A. I manage to write a few lines when it strikes. That's all. I too am in awe of people who write poetry.

Thanks for reading. Welcome back.


Talking To My Soul 17 September 2009 at 12:38  


Thank you so much, Rick. I value your words very much.

Thanks for reading.

A very beautiful poem!

Perhaps all the chatter of the voices keeps the dream of the Soul in deep hibernation. Only Stillness, like a kiss, will bring the dream to the surface so that beauty will shine for all once again.

Talking To My Soul 18 September 2009 at 15:53  


I agree. May be all I need and yearn for is that stillness.

Thanks, mate. Thanks for reading. Do return.

Beautiful.. want to say more but am afraid to scare the magic of your words away with my compliments :P

Talking To My Soul 24 September 2009 at 02:10  


Well...There is no magic in my words. But I won't certainly mind a few more words from you. Trust me, I would lap them up. Go right ahead if you wish to.

But thanks, dear. Thank you.


Anna 25 September 2009 at 10:13
