this dreamy descent

We talk about lifelong memories
The way they shape our inner documentaries
We talk about seizing a moment, a specific time
The way it’ll harmonize like our favorite chime

There’s a climb and a descent
A climb to the day we always dreamt
A descent back to normal when it’s over
The way a love can become your closure

We dream of a specifically distinct vision
It becomes the something that makes us driven
The day comes when that vision is your reality
Smacks you in the face, this waking fantasy

You think about all that could go wrong
The fears flutter like a disjointed song
But something kicks in and wakes you up
Reminded of who you are, it fills your cup

Then you live everything going so right
As if perfection truly is in sight
You pull through a hard obstacle
Like a puzzle you didn’t know was solvable

When you’re just about done
You’re taken back to when it all begun
The win seems like it’s floating away
But it’s still right there if you stay

There will be moments it doesn’t feel like a dream
Moments you wonder why you chose this theme
There will be times you’d rather crash than fly
Times you wonder why you want the high

But that something comes whooshing back
Pushes the fear to the side with a whack
Reminds you to look around, to remember who you are
To feel the fire deep inside your shooting star

So you look at everyone in your crew
You look within, remembering you grew
You take a deep breath, gather your force
And that’s why the dream is your source

  2. When you’re just about done
    You’re taken back to when it all begun…this resonates well with me, but the last stanza is also relatable. What you wanted to put across has been conveyed well. Life is full of ups and downs, but the same life gives rays of hope too. A beautifully crafted poem, Grace! Each verse carries a deep message. Well done, my friend 😊❤️

  3. Grace this is so well thought out and laid out.. love your very natural unforced rhyme.. love your whole thought pattern, your energy your conviction. You speak from a place that has seen it all before. This is what gives your piece such power and assurance. So many winderful couplets, i would have to copy half the poem. Really Grace, i felt your energy, conviction and your wise words so clearly. I too felt energized after reading you. Wow!!!

  6. “You take a deep breath, gather your force
    And that’s why the dream is your source”

    No wonder my latest poem talks about this very phenomenon. I feel like we’re connected on some other plane of existence. Your thoughts always have a way of sneaking in my mind without me knowing them or we’re both connected to the same source. Love the way you think ❤
