Eternal Dreams

So I wondered if I could capture the essence of a dream in a poem. Also I haven't written anyone a poem in months and months so Jaffa, this poem is for you. I hope you enjoy!

Eternal Dreams

In dreams of dreams eternal
A constant fantasy
Lost in a land half waking
And all the world a dream
In wistful worlds so weary
Dominions drowning dreary
In endless echelons eerie
A silent ceaseless scream

A girl by name of Jaffa
Set fire to the rain
Drifting through the aether
She knows not, what is pain
She knows not, what is panic,
She knows not, what is rue
She knows not whence she came from
Except for a teardrop blue

A man by name of Morbid
Is seeking for multiple things
His face is masked with feathers
That reptilian autumn brings
He longs to share his memories
He yearns to share his soul
And a teardrop blue is leaking
From the half he calls a whole

Amidst a background silver
Tendrils of poisonous light
Entwine the two together
And banish the tender night
They fuse to make one being
The lost who became the found
And Jaffa Morbid rushes forth
To slowly sink a marmalade North
Into the wraithlike ground


  1. Oh wow Octa, thank you so much.
    That was seriously beautiful
    You have an amazing talent

    Sorry I haven't been around much lately, got my own laptop bow so I should be able to come online a bit more.

  2. This is so beautiful and whimsical and fanciful and wonderful.

    It's so dreamlike.
