Dreamt in the dark

Let the glimmer fade
The curtains fall
One show ends
And the stage is swept
House lights dim
Darkness waits
While the playwright
Prepares the next story
Scrawled on a fresh sheet
While a hummed note
Introduces a new score
Rising timorous from the pit
Strings strummed for tuning
Finding a pitch
To which
First words will sound
Bringing to light dreams
Dreamt in the dark

"Dreamt in the dark," poetry by Roshan James


  1. Magnificent transitioning moment of moving on. Aptly dated of course. Much enjoyed, thank you.

  2. I love the theatre and I truly believe ‘life is a stage’. This is an awesome piece. You have certainly created a piece beyond that of which Shakespeare penned.
