No Dreams For The Dreamer

There will be no more dreams for the dreamer
for none of his dreams have come true.
Now emptiness has engulfed the dreamer
as he wonders what else he can do.

His dreams of hope have turned to heartache.
His dreams of joy have turned to pain.
His dreams of love have turned to heartbreak
and the rest have gone down the drain.

The dreamer has nothing to hold on to
but the pillow where lays his head.
Everything else that resided in his dream world
has shriveled up and gone dead.

What do we do for the dreamer now
to give him a boost and help him along?
Who has a kind word to cheer him up somehow
and who can sing him a happy song?

For if there are no more dreams for the dreamer
then that we all doomed to fall
because if hope is lost for the dreamer
then there is nothing but lost hope for us all.

when dreamer's dreams lost
devote soul to compassion
help others, help self

Sometimes dreamers sing sad songs.

I relate to the dreamer, Vernon. My recent poem is about dreams as well.

Don't feel all is lost. Sometimes a little dream is just around the corner. Keep loving and dreaming.

Wow. This is like the antithesis of one of those little pep-talk poems you hear at like, A.A. meetings. I mean, so I've heard.
