Poem - Once Dreamt

“Once Dreamt” is about a prophetic poem I had when I was in college. Dreams can be frilly silly, or they can speak to things that are incredibly personal.

Once Dreamt

I once dreamt I was allured
to an object that most demurred
they were repelled to step far away
as I approached to longingly gaze

realization filled my head
awareness kin to creeping dread
what did this mean for a young soul
a message sent from sleeping world?

it was a dream so none did see
what filled my vision behind the veil
yet in my heart thought was conceived
these symbols said my life could change

revelation had tapped my arm
said look here son, don't be alarmed
there's no harm if that’s what you want
slumber cracked the window and showed the door

alternatives were thus revealed
I’m awake I’ll have you know
from the dreams my path was set
and to this day I still walk it.
