Staircase to my Dreams

We are thrilled to debut Shahd Thani‘s poetic piece inspired by the April Theme “Dreams” where she uses the imagery of poetry to showcase her emotions and talents. Enjoy!

I climb stairways in search of my dreams

On and on, the bannisters sway

Polished wood gleams

My lumbering steps, heavy

Clumsy as I plunge endlessly

When I haven’t even begun to climb

Glass slippers shatter

Shards piercing my skin

I bleed upon the marble floor

Your reflection, shivers

Within crimson mirrors

I fall asleep upon raven’s feathers

Burrowing into the darkness

Craving the warmth of your fire

My soul searching for yours

A hopeless kiss upon iced lips

And life breathed into me

I hold on to nothing

I hold on to everything

All my fairy tales

All my hopes

My heart barely begins

To feel full

Before it’s empty again

And, you, my desperate desire,

My incandescent weakness

Will you ever know how much of my strength

Hangs upon your selfless heart?

All my dreams

And you,

my love,

are lost

Inconceivable

Unattainable

Utterly beyond my reach

Dissipating into the morning light

  2. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. I loved it especially this part:

    I fall asleep upon raven’s feathers
    Burrowing into the darkness
    Craving the warmth of your fire
    My soul searching for yours
    A hopeless kiss upon iced lips
    And life breathed into me

    Keep it up my dear, you’ve got a gift right there. 🙂
    Hoping to see more of your work in the future.

  3. Amazing work as always. I can really relate to this, trying to reach out for something , wanting it so terribly and yet something tells you that you may not obtain it… I guess everyone has. lol but I usually dismiss that voice and try to keep the hope alive , b5t9ar a89 3la 3mry and believing it. Positive attraction they say ~ xD I truley hope and wish that everyone finally reaches the top of that staircase, I really do. Awesome work, you are really talented and looking forward to more ❤
