Wanderlust, My Mind…

I dreamt of wealth
A hidden treasure
I went on a quest
To retrieve pleasure
I desired the chest
I reached its side
The dream changed
Like the world lied
I didn’t stop dreaming
I dreamt of power
The ruler of worlds
I commanded respect
Watched it unfold
I desired the best
To the zenith, I climbed
The dream changed
Like the world lied
I didn’t stop dreaming
I dreamt of travels
In many worlds afar
Doubling pleasures
Vanishing old scars
I dreamt of success
When failure was near
I dreamt of fair hope
When alluring was fear
I dreamt of perfection
The best of the best
I wanted no seconds
Only the top had zest
I dreamt of friendship
A guide that was true
I wanted a dear angel
The dream showed you
This dream didn’t die
It never blurred away
It must be a true one
I heard myself say
Like a wanderlust now
My mind did travel
Dreaming the desires
Watching them unravel
I didn’t stop dreaming
My desires they show
Some true and golden
Some fickle in its flow
A world contorts here
Like none other can see
In my dreams I wander
Being who I yearn to be
One Single Impression

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Written like a true wanderer, Leo. I liked the third to last verse best, it had a good ending. The last one sums it all up very nicely…

  2. really a wanderlust of thoughts…and dreams…keep dreaming Leo…:)very beautifully rendered…me, am about to stop dreaming…reality is painful so i will continue dreaming…

  3. While it is great to wander in our dreams…it is more wonderful to dream as we wander.Even though this piece was long, I enjoyed reading every line of it 🙂

  4. To Amity,never stop dreaming.. it gives you hope.. not all become true perhaps, but its the one place where u can be anyone u want to be 🙂
