Poets are not people
just a phrase in a book
think God almighty
words that are said.

Dream on a wish,
wish to come true,
do you believe,
I love you?

Never believe in wisdom,
nor believe in power,
just a humble child
lain down to rest.

Hi roovacrag

I am perplexed, I am not sure what is lying undeneath this piece. I almost thought of death of a child, maybe death of innocence? Or the fabrications of writeing?

What say you?

GARD,trust you to be the first.
Poets are human beings,not gods.

People seem to think we are different.
We are ,just human beings,doing chores like everyone else.

People who read poetry , and more are doing it,because they enjoy reading it.
It is like reading into a soul of the writer.

You can read a mind and soul in poetry.

Hi Alice,

This is an intriguing poem. It felt like a different poem in each stanza, but the rythm linked them together, with a kind of fragmented dreamlike effect. A fascinating poetic illusion.

A fools dream.
