Read Me Real

I am the person to breathe you real
Reawaken perfect in any age
I house every moment you hold dear

Receptacle of your every hope and fear
Witness to your anger when you engage
Returned again to breathe you real

Memories still fresh of how we feel
Locked together on third eye's stage
All the moments that I hold dear

I can hear your voice when I hold you near
Give you my mind, free of your cage
A playground for me to breathe you real

Come with me again on time line's wheel
Do not be afraid to turn the page
Our story has all the moments I hold dear

It's our voices on the wind we hear
All it takes for me to be assuaged
Stories on the wind when I breathe you real
Stories in my mind, moments I hold dear
So Nightwish released a new song called Storytime and while watching the video I got this idea for a poem :D It's about when you read the story you see everything in your minds eye and it's like freeing the character from the page into your world. And when you read the story your breathing life into the characters. Breathing them real so to speak :D I'm pretty happy with how this one came out, please let me know what you think

That is phenomenal! Reading it without context though is very does not sound like a poem about books. But knowing that, makes the poem all the better.
Hmm, will you describe how you felt reading it without context? When I wrote this poem I wrote it with the context of books and reading in mind. Now I'm curious as to what you felt or saw when you read it :D
I must admit that I have not read earlier literature on dA but I have a rule that if someone gives me fav, I check his I read this poem and it's really good, moving and delicate (;
Well thank you very much! I know poetry isn't very popular these days and very few people want to sit down and read/possibly think about the poetry. I'm glad you liked it. I wrote this one for a very close friend of mine who is an author whose 10th book is set to be released this may :D
wow, 10th book? great number;D

yes, I'm quite ashamed that I'm too lazy to read on dA literature because I'm writing too (but only in Polish so I don't submit it here) and I should understand difficulties of writing and try to support authors...but you know I'm very lazy:P

Anyway I'll try to read more on dA (;
You always welcome to look through my gallery anytime. I don't surf much poetry on dA because I've found alot of it I'm not really a fan of. I really get into older forms of poetry. the popular trend of free form verse doesn't appeal much to me.
yes, traditional form is very more masterly.
but I love free form of great Polish poets during and after second world war.

and I'm writing short narratives (;
That is very cool! On both counts actually.
this is pretty awesome. i love the imagery. nicely done Capt! :D :highfive:
Thank you very much!
