Orialis M. Pena

I Wish...

I wish that I could just dream this life away... 
But tomorrow comes a new day and the sun
rises again chasing the moon away and betraying
my prayers in the process.

I wish the night would last forever
but the day takes that away from me too...

I wish I could stare at the stars forever,
but the sun outshines them each morning to come.

I long for the night, but day keeps taking
it away and with it my wishes as well...

    Orialis, this is a very nicely penned poem about 'wishful thinking'. Unfortunately, reality is sometimes killing our dreams. Would it maybe be better to change the dreams?

    Mesmerised by the stars and by the night. I remember that place well and I remember too the peace that came with it - a place for dreamers and poets I think. Well written. Joe
