Waking Dreams


I thought about writing something original, but I simply modified an older poem instead when I got to thinking about dreams and reality and how their collision is sometimes too real. The poem itself was actually longer originally, and did not rhyme. Wow, three poems in a row that have a rhyme to them... I'll try and fix that later, lol.

'Waking Dreams'

'Tis too late for me to know,
What an end lies within my sight.
Your image continues its haunting;
You are my burden within the night.

'Tis too late for me to hope,
Movements and forms beyond tomorrow.
Lost in a cacophony of thoughts,
Becoming then an instrument of my
sorrow.

'Tis too late for me to love,
For you are but a dream.
No amount of longing makes you real,
Even if real is what you seem.

cacophony?! Were you going merely for syllable rhythm there or what? *L* I know; poetic license, illiteration, etcetera...I am impressed, even though I rag you!

*STILL think he's a cute 'geek'*

A little bit of both, plus I always liked the word. I've always been accused of having good diction

alliteration {which was spelled wrong, and which the style of your writing wasn't really using}....

*When a geekess can't write...can't think of no 'cool' ST or B5 or DW or RD quotes...sigh...she's messed UP! *

I love a good alliterative verse from time to time. When in doubt on quotes, I always go with this classic:

'The avalanche has already begun. It is too late for the pebbles to vote.' -- Kosh.

It's always enigmatic and usually appropriate

Sinclair: They say God works in mysterious ways.
Garibaldi: Maybe so, but He's a con-man compared to the Vorlon.

Kosh Naranek: Understanding is a three-edged sword.

Kosh Naranek: A stroke of the brush does not guarantee art from the bristles.

Kosh Naranek: Ah, you seek meaning?
Talia: Yes.
Kosh Naranek: Then listen to the music, not the song.

Captain John Sheridan: You know, I just had a thought. You've been back and forth to your world so many times since you got here. How do I know you're the same Vorlon? Inside that encounter suit you could be anyone.
Kosh Naranek: I have *always* been here.
Captain John Sheridan: Oh, yeah? You said that about me too.
Kosh Naranek: Yes. [starts to walk away]
Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.
Kosh Naranek: [turns around] Good!

Susan Ivanova: Another lesson?
Captain John Sheridan: Uh-huh.
Susan Ivanova: What was this one about?
Captain John Sheridan: Uh...Beauty...In the dark...
Susan Ivanova: Well...they must be working; you're beginning to sound just like a Vorlon.

*******
Ambassador Vir Cotto: Prophecy is a guess that comes true. When it doesn't, it's a metaphor.

Citizen G'Kar: Our thoughts form the universe. They are always important.

Citizen G'Kar: I told you I could help. The book of G'Quan. Read it. We'll talk afterwards.
Michael Garibaldi: I don't read Narn.
Citizen G'Kar: Learn!

Citizen G'Kar: The universe is run by the complex interweaving of three elements. Energy, matter, and enlightened self-interest.

Citizen G'Kar: We all believe in something...greater than ourselves, even if it's just the blind forces of chance.

Delenn: The third principle of sentient life is the capacity for self-sacrifice, the conscious ability to override evolution and self-preservation for a cause, a friend, a loved one.

It's easy to find something worth dying for. Do you have anything worth living for? {Lorien}

I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life *were* fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe. {Marcus Cole}

Everyone around me dies, Mr. Morden, except those who most deserve it. {Ambassador Londo Mollari}

[Earthgov agent is trying to seduce Sheridan, and he has to let her] Ivanova: Good luck, captain. I think you're about to go where...everyone has gone before.

Ivanova: Worst case of testosterone poisoning I have ever seen.

Susan Ivanova: Don't. You're too young to experience that much pain.

Lord Refa: Why should I do as you say?
Ambassador Londo Mollari: Because I have asked you. Because your sense of duty to our people should override any personal ambition. And because I have poisoned your drink.

Ambassador Londo Mollari: But this - this, this, this is like being nibbled to death by... what are those Earth creatures called? Feathers, long bill, webbed feet... go 'quack'...
Ambassador Vir Cotto: Cats.
Ambassador Londo Mollari: Cats. Being nibbled to death by cats.

And absolutely the speech made by Delenn to the invading ship which ended "If you value your life...be somewhere ELSE." She {the actress} would have made a wonderful ST Captain!

I also like the old Egyptian Blessing that Marcus asks about in 'Shadow Dancing': 'May God stand between you and harm in all the empty places where you must walk.'. And the quote from Marcus is a classic. B5 definitely has some of the best quotes (and writing no less) of any scifi series. It's a shame that Crusade got cancelled.
