Field of Dreams

My dreams are now as nightmares,

as I wander through and through,

My mind is now corrupted,

as I wander through the new,

 

New doors have opened to me,

and I've paused then to step in,

wondering, and puzzling,

at all that lies within,

 

I step then through the blackness

of the open portal there,

and I step out into wonder,

that I never then could share,

 

I meet then a real new sight,

as the colors swirl by,

I see a field,a whole new world,

and I step forth now, but nigh!

 

What are these things that dwell here,

oh black creatures of the night,

these skeletons and wanderers,

who blunder in the blight.

 

A road now falls before me,

going down into the field,

I see bright blooms around me,

and I hope they are my shield,

 

A shield now from the danger,

that now dwells within my mind,

among the red, and white, and pink,

I know not what I'll find.

 

Things rise up from the ocean;

sea of Red, and pink, and black,

and I wander on the road there,

looking now for what I lack,

 

my dreams have drawn me to here,

to this field ever bright,

And carry ever onward,

though my mind's not always right.

 

I walk now through the meadow,

and I wonder what it means

to ever, ever wander,

in this endless Field of Dreams.

    eerie, and magnificient. The last line always seems to be my favorite in the poems accompanying (spl?) these surrealist vigs. The part where the title simply MUST connect with the rest of the poem. Honestly? this gave me goosebumps. an excellent representation of the fact that things are not always what they seem, and looks can, and often are, deceiving.

    admirably done, a tip of the hat to you.
    >:D

    The 'portal' could use some more greebs. Then again, it might start to blend with the rest of the MOC.

    Amazing vig, man. And the poem is awesome, I just love it. Adds to the vig so much.
