I often dream to see a dream, Beckoning me to times unseen, Taking me to places not been, All written in my heart's large ream, It is what I could never deem, Endless quest of desires untold, Reaching out to all not foretold, My inane fears jest in applause, I shudder at their loud guffaws,… Continue reading Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 7 (DREAM).
