REM

She dreams:

Scarlet silk rivers slip
through trembling fingers--

Come on, Booth.

Warm hands breathe
against cool glass

and

Eyes shaded like dirt
and old blood blink back--

I'm sorry.

A car coughs;
snow stutters from a barren sky--

Silent night, holy night
Come back, please.

Daylight grasps her
shoulder, shaking her free
from Morpheus' embrace.

The new sandbox suits you. Really. I've never been one for epic reviews, but I would just like to say that your first step into fan poetry was beautiful.

I love the tone of the last passage, so evocative!

I liked it. Stark with amazing imagery.

I'm not sure why you are asking for forgiveness... ;)

This was utterly beautiful.

I wouldn't even know where to start with poetry. Really sweetie, fab job :)

Just as you write amazing prose, you write beautiful poetry.

wow awesome :) I often find myself in awe of poets because I've written some but can't seem to get any out now...and even when I do, it's never as good as what I read. I hope you do more poetry.

I usually am a hater of poetry but this was beautiful :)

Beautiful, I loved it (and I don't usually like poetry)! Fantastic imagery and descriptiveness, amazing job!

Nice sandbox. :-)

Neatly lyrical, wonderfully visual. The dream, the nightmare - they're one for her...

Once again: nice.

Beyond brilliant-- the personification is especially apt: hands against glass, cars, and the snow. Daylight grasps her/shoulder, shaking her free/from Morpheus' embrace-- I like this a lot, the thought of an "embrace". (Often I find references to Greek Mythology more poetic than other things. It's funny like that.)

I found the line starting silent night, holy night to be a little odd, though. It seems a little awkward there, with the come back, please right after.

Overall, though, this poem is awesome in its simultaneous simplicity/complexity. Thank you for sharing.

That's funny; I actually especially liked the silent night holy night line. My interpretation is that Brennan is really reaching out to anything, even to a god she doesn't believe in, to bring Booth back. Strange how different things work for different people!

Hey now, I like this a lot. I love that it's lyrical and flows beautifully, and also that it's somewhat freeverse (if that's the correct term...)
It's lovely. :)
