The Locket (Eternal Dream)

She carries it with her always and everywhere

 

Around her neck or clutched tightly in hand

 

This delicate piece of jewelry holds her world

 

Contains the mysteries of her exquisite elegance

 

A heart shaped golden locket of  hopes and dreams

 

Within it exists all the things she cannot shine without

 

The reasons for her flawless, heart stopping beauty

 

As well as the cause of her inner strengths and desires

 

It holds the enchantment to bring her into her dreams

 

While providing her with a most pleasant place to dwell

 

Surrounds her with friends of the vast animal kingdom

 

To keep her company and provide occasional counsel

 

As she is led to her fated haven by two of a feathered kind

 

One brilliant white and brought by the warmth of the sun

 

The other pitch black and warning of the dangers of the light

 

Such guidance she receives only within her endless dreams

 

This brilliantly shining bauble both a blessing and a curse

 

Holding the power to set her free, yet keeps her captive

 

Tricks her into the serenity of  such peaceful dreams

 

While her waking world crumbles to dust all around

 

Yes, this spellbinding trinket holds her mesmerized

 

Filling her with the same false hopes that befell her kin

 

Truth be told of the origin of this treasured lavaliere

 

Stunning pendant was ever so cleverly crafted from sin

  1. Sigh … there was so much in this piece that touched me. I don’t think it would surprise you that I wish for such a locket, especially knowing it was crafted from sin. 😉 This is certainly another “John favorite” for me.

    • Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it. I always love your perspectives and take on my stories. Much more optimistic than what I had in mind for the character. Why writing is so powerful. Everybody can interpret what their heart and minds eye tells them. So glad you take something from my writing D. Hope all is well my friend.

    • Thanks CBXB. Love that this piece stirred emotions within. Funny how it is being perceived as a mostly positive piece. I had darker intentions behind the scenes, but the readers perception is ALWAYS right. One hundred readers and one hundred different perspectives would mean that one hundred readers took their own enjoyment and that makes me absolutely thrilled. Thanks as usual for reading and letting me know your thoughts. Never lose the sentimentality or the romance for life my friend. Your passions are obvious.

      • Well, thanks for saying I’m always right. Even if you do mean as a reader! 🙂 Writing is truly fascinating in the way that interpretations vary vastly even on one poem. Love it!
