In My Dreams


Sleeping Beauty


in my dreams, the world is endless,

the sky change from saffron to vermillion to cerulean,

the rain tastes like lime,

and the air smells like blood orange.

in my dreams, i move gracefully.

like a bamboo swinging when the cold november wind blew.

i dance with felicity.

i swirled and twirled and do side steps.

the pas de bourrée, pirouettes, and the piqués are on point.

in my dreams, i sang the songs of love and joy.

i compose the melody that will make you feel a warm glow of contentment.

in my dreams, i drew inspiration from the sycamore and the robins.

then, i belt out a lullaby to make all creatures slumber.

in my dreams, it’s a whole new world.

a world created by me and for me,

where pain and desperation never exists,

and where happy thoughts can lift you up in the air.

in my dreams

i fly through the stratosphere with the moon on my background

i swim and discover the world below the waves.

in my dreams

my world is beautiful, wonderful and astonishing.

but, in my dreams, i am alone.

and though surrounded with beauty, in my dreams, i am lonely.

in my dreams, i dream of one thing.

i want the dreaming to end.

    7. The round table challenge is a monthly activity that showcase the writing prowess of its members. choz lang un, hehe...

      Simple lang siya, we have a facebook account where all its members are part of, someone will give a prompt at the 15th of every month and by the next month, you have to write something about it. Parang creative writing in journalism.

      Its fun, minsan nga lang sobrang hirap nung topic (remember the clouds post?) may mga ganun, pero okay naman.

      If you want to join us, you need to create a blogger account in order to post something on the aggregate site. Since you are in WP, i think that will be a concern pero we will just figure something out once we get there na. :)

      If you want to join us, send me your facebook account and I will talk to citibuoy about it,

      sorry sa long comment. ay blog ko pala ito. hahaha

    1. hahaha... i also think about that, waht if sleeping beauty will never want to wake up? na parang inistorbo lang siya ng prince charming niya, hehe... isa lang ang true, walang happily ever after

    2. I planned to hit that angle. Wasn't successful though.

    3. it was naman... what is important is that the message you want to imply was understood by your readers.

  4. that is a danger about dreaming is that it takes you away from the now. for a young man, it is a problem with the feminine, which has been forgotten or is trying to be forgotten. it is interesting then, that you took for your princess, Aurora/Briar Rose, where we also have a problem with the feminine, which has been forgotten. Maleficent, the forgotten feminine, then appears to haunt that which has forgotten her. But it also sets the stage for the possible redemption. so perhaps, my only question, is... is the lack of a Prince Phillip figure or path in your poem signal that you are still in the deep sleep? brilliant Orange Wit. just brilliant.

    1. Every time I think of Aurora, I always ask myself why is her story concentrating on her sleeping for a hundred years, and just waiting for Prince Charming to kiss her.

      Then I realized how twisted the fairy tale can get. What if only Prince Charming is in love with Aurora and she doesn't feel the same way? What if the kiss is only enough to make her wake up and not to make her fall in love with him? Then I thought of the things that may go through Sleeping Beauty's mind while she was on slumber? Hence, the poem was created.

      When I wrote this, I was focusing on the girl. I haven't thought of prince charming, let's just say that she is still on deep sleep, and she will do everything just to wake up and leave that pretty place.

  5. I guess we never really want what we have. lolz but isn't that the so-called secret to happiness.

    i love how you were playful with how you described things. i see you moving out of your comfort zone and trying new things. it thrills me to see such braveness. go LJ! :)

    what i wasn't really sure about is the shift in emotion towards the end.. i guess i was expecting the typical "but it's only when i sleep..." keme that we've all gotten used to. why does aurora dream of waking up when she is surrounded by such beauty? why would anyone give that up especially when we know how badly life bites our asses. perhaps for brevity, you left that out (?) i'm wondering if that's a theme you'd like to explore in a future post.

    1. to quote adam young, "reality is a lovely place but i wouldn't want to live there." there will always be something about reality that will make you dont want to stay there.

      but i always believe that you will always find happiness in contentment. that is something that my Aurora wants, to be with someone and to never be alone anymore. though she knows that it will be difficult and maybe it will not be as beautiful, she knows that it will be better than what she already have

    2. Oh that's it! She is surrounded by beauty but she is lonely! It makes so much sense to me now. What good is dancing if there's no one to watch it. lolz Or the leo in me is just being vain.

    3. Hahaha... I guess it is the Leo in you,
