Wanderlust

The blue bottle of my pristine dreams
Rolled down to your feet
You pick it up with your tender hands
Find it not so worthwhile
Throw it away
The glass lies on the floor, shattered
Floating dreams flowing with the breeze
Kissing the clouds
Flying high
Reaching nowhere
Why did you break me?
My dream asks you
When all I dreamt was ‘you’

  2. Very very touching. I don't think there is any need to analyze any further. The lines are so simple that the point is driven home instantly. Nicely done. Beautiful!

  4. Maybe dreams are made to be broken so that we can create new dreams? Dreams are the inspiration for wanderlust. Very nice.

  5. Dear Poet,
    If you are receiving this announcement, it means that at one time or another you linked an acrostic poem at Acrostic Only. We are in the process of preparing for our first Acrostic Only Anthology – Volume I. If you care to be a part of this wonderful project, please visit our Blog for more information.

    We will be choosing poems to be considered for the Anthology from January – March, 2010. However, if you desire to have some of your work considered, there are a couple of deadlines you will have to meet, and you must email me your intentions to acrosticonly@gmail.com!

    I thank you all for supporting Acrostic Only, and I look forward to another year poetic interaction.

    Happy New Year to you, your beloved family, and readers!
    Amias

  7. i totally like the way ur mind wanders and conjure up beautiful images. they r very unique and so mesmerising eventhough ther's an underlying tone of despondency.
