Dreams Bucket List Well Toxic A Poem


I think of the path
That could have been
The dreams that I
Once upon a time dreamt.
Oh the places
That were in those dreams
I will admit
It was mostly Europe.
To which I actually
Only made one trip.

Can someone's soul
Be crushed by disappointment
That they just go
Through the motions
For upon
Which turn into decades?
I will tell you, yes
I am an example of it.

But my mind
Did not forget!
Even though
It was depressed.
When I occasionally
Wake up
Those dreams
Seemingly take a breath
Or is that a yawn
And stretch.
As they see the light
Of dawn.

Dormancy
Hibernation
Take your pick
Should those dreams
Be added to a bucket list?
Or should they be
Given the heave ho
As the well they were in
Has turned toxic?

Silly me!
Fanciful!
Sheer idicocy
When I am just barely
Surviving this
Minimum existence.

A sniff
And a whiff
Of what could have been
Men who figured into
That equation
Always finding me wanting
Even though I would have
Been the most wonton
Of women had they
Just given me the go ahead.

What does it all mean?
I ask No one in particular
Clergy would give me
An answer
About God's work
Psychologists
And Scientists
Would be more pragmatic.
But still their answer
Would come up short.

Ashes to ashes
And all that jazz
What it comes down to
Is No one really cares.
My dreams mean
Little in the grand
Scheme of things.
So back into the wastebin
They can go
Back into the well
Whose water is now toxic.
There are other
Worthy causes.
Children with their
Whole lives ahead of them
They can enlist me
As their mentor
Or should that be
Cautioner.
With all that entails.
Perhaps I can live
Once again.
Doing so
Vicariously through them.

Stimulate my mind with words of poetry. And my body will follow it's lead...

Keep a tight hold on your dreams and do not throw them away. I think that would be my advice to anyone,young or old. We all hope to see a light at the end of the tunnel and that is what dreams are.

The fact is, we now have to double-check.
Posts are not meant to have bits missing.
Take a trip to Europe by ship. Stay on deck.
I'll meet you at the dock for sublime kissing.
