If Only I Had The Time…

Incomplete dreams wait
Fashioning into reality

Once, woven by threads
Nestled deep in mind
Long have the stitching
Yearned for unraveling

Impossible, they aren’t

Hard done by each tick
Against me, lost these
Desires seem within me

Talismanic, my dreams
Hiding themselves, an
Emergence they await

Trapped, in two words,
If only”, my life passes
Momentarily its wishes
Etched in a sand grain

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. Beautiful words…and a great poem…

    “Trapped, in two words,
    “If only”, my life passes
    Momentarily its wishes
    Etched in a sand grain”

    These lines I super-like… 🙂

  2. Looks sad 🙁 and defeatism is acceptance of defeat without struggle 🙁 I hate those two words “if only”. 🙁 The best line here is “Impossible, they aren’t” 🙂 and incomplete dreams await to emerge into reality 🙂 and it can never be too late to start.

    Best Wishes as always Leo!! 😀

  3. Brilliant! “If only I had the time”…yes that thought crosses my mind often.

    Loved this verse:
    “Hard done by each tick
    Against me, lost these
    Desires seem within me”

    I know exactly how that feels… 🙂

    • yeah.. a message within a message, it is a beautiful form of poetry for sure, Lynn 🙂 and it sort of can be related to by many na? It is sort of mine too, and hopefully, I can time it 🙂

  4. If only I have the time,
    smart acrostic, what a cute mixture of dreams and reality.

  5. Once, woven by threads
    Nestled deep in mind

    Yearned for unraveling
