Psyche’s Lament

While yet I find you waiting in my dreams
It’s though we’re not meant for the light of day
The sunlight hides your face from me it seems

I have no idea just what all this means
This haunt my subconscious has wont to play
While yet I find you waiting in my dreams

Your face so near yet blinded by moonbeams
Your face so gone when lords of light hold sway
The sunlight hides your face from me it seems

A hapless pawn I am in these grand schemes
You hide at the first hint of sun’s display
While yet I find you waiting in my dreams

Or do you have a hand in these extremes
These rules I have no choice but to obey
The sunlight hides your face from me it seems

You’re here at Nox’s whims but yet it deems
That Eos equally keeps you at bay
The sunlight hides your face from me it seems
While yet I find you waiting in my dreams

  1. Beautifully crafted. The repetitions kept changing inferences in each successive stanza and the overall effect was enchanting and musical. (BTW next FFA in two weeks …let me know if you’re still ok with that date.)

  2. smiles…i am looking forward to it as well…really nicely done…great hook lines and def like how you played them through out….that last stanza is killer…love the references in it too…
