only in dreams do dreams come true

dreamt a dream where a dream came true

and as the dream came true a former flame did her best to burn it down

when the alarm went off i fought responsibility to stay and see where it would go

but then woke up less than awake with this aching ache

now i want to fall back in and see the results of a dream come true but the dream is gone

bitter sprigs and heavy heart are all that start the day

i’m not one for omens

good nor bad

because i am one for omens

even if they all seem nefarious

head wrapped in fuzzy feedback loops to the dream where a dream came true

met with incredulous dispassionate disinterest from the eyes of cold embers long burnt out

      1. Aesop Rock has a song called No Regrets and it just a lovely story. The summation of it is Lucy lived the dream she wanted to be from day one and never dreamt. That’s my goal I think. To be the dream I’ve always wanted to be. Just, you know, broken and depressed as it I live it.
