BIG LETTERS

the loneliest umbrella's picture

Let's go to that far-away place
The one you tell me about every morning
The place we're in when I'm in your dreams

Where shimmer-spray sparkle
and dusty brick-bottlecap
Creates a seashore symphony
And on the old shop walls
I put BIG LETTERS
So I could just let you know
In streams of chemical color paint
Dripping with love and glimmer-glowing warmth

Please show me that old-time picture
That one you hate so much when we fight
Where I have those demon eyes
next to your demon grin
and the Christmas tree gleams
like it knows what we're thinking

My BIG LETTERS are still on the wall
But you didn't know it
And the Christmas tree won't tell me what you're thinking
So just let me know.
Just let me know.

I love the imagery and word usage of this poem. :)

"All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream."
