Poem 22 – After ‘Darn that Dream’

Damn that woman who pursues me in sleep,
And curse her beguiling guise.
I hope that she’ll not say again ‘I love you’ behind closed eyes.
I loathe all of these fancies,
Whatever they might mean,
Unless of course she might fill my life as she now haunts my dreams.


Dear readers,
Today’s poem is another poem inspired by a song that I’m fond of – in this case, ‘Darn that Dream’. The first version of the song I heard was with Miles Davis and Kenny Hagood, and can be found here, though there are lots of versions that are equally good. I hope you enjoy it – I certainly did, and the rest of the album is worth buying. I apologise for the short poem – I’m a tad busy, having just gone to university, but should be able to maintain the flow of poetry. 
As always, I hope that you enjoy the poetry,
The Hapless Neo-Romantic.
