Chapter 1

Darling, I see you smile at me

You're smiling lights my very soul

I just want you to know you had me at 'Hello'

You are my courage

When we are apart I am lost

I seek shelter in your warm embraces

The storms around me can never enter

In your arms I know I am complete

Everyone before you was never good enough

I don't see anything after you

You look at me

You encourage me to keep fighting

Fighting a battle that you had all along

I am a dreamer, but if my dreams are our communication

I can live another moment in this paradise

Please don't wake me up, I don't want to leave this meadow

A meadow where our hearts, and souls are together forever

I can see you in my dreams

Never aging, barely over the years

When I frown that is because I failed you

I failed you in many ways

I took time that could never be gotten back

I thought it was more fun in greener pastures

But the grass is dying rapidly

Dying leaving me with only a shattered heart

A heart full of hopes that may never come

Hopes that I fear will never live again

Only in my dreams I am myself

I see you, and I am one of you

But now I feel so lost and alone

But I can blame no one else but myself

I got caught in a trap

A web of lies

Now I am just a willing dreamer

Dreaming things that are forever out of my grasp

Please forgive me, you don't have to like me, I just ask for your forgiveness

Then maybe this string of nightmares will end and I will once again gain acceptance.

E.: As a fellow poet and new author here on Inkitt https://www.inkitt.com/dantalionofthegoetia I was deeply moved by The Little Book's heartfelt and inspirational poetry, filled with years of love, pain, and finally redemption.

EmilieS: Although these poems were written in a larger span of time, you have kept your central topic unchanged – love, lost love, loneliness and missing someone. I appreciate this immensely – staying true to your work, staying true to yourself. My favourite one was “He Still Haunts me Relentlessly”. You ...

Nayana : I love the poems written in the book. Each poem is unique and emotional. The imagery of the poems caught my attention. I love the comparisons made. Would highly recommend everyone to read it.

Tahlia : This was really good and the structure was too considering that it can be more challenging than other writing structures. I loved the plots although maybe use more creative language such as, similes , metaphors, oxymorons etc. I would definitely recommend this to others to read.
