I Dreamt You Were a Poem
A Poem I Wanted to Show Someone
I dreamt you were a poem,
A poem I wanted to show someone...
Show it as a trophy
Praise it like
A beautiful Cadillac
An expensive diamond
A rare jewel to be found in the depths
of the Baltic Sea.
I dreamt you were a masterpiece.
Standing inside an honored exhibition.
A display sat in the center,
every detail of you marked on walls,
named after you
and praised from all.
You and I were one since five.
Growing up and sharing the prides of life,
We knew the meaning of love
Of friendship or Romance, call it what you want,
We knew what it was
And we grew wanting more.
I dreamt we were flowers growing under
The same sun
Under the same stars
Feeding on the same love.
But that dream turned into a nightmare
Where I perished and thawed into the ground,
Because you decided to grow under a different sun
Feeding on a different love.
Then I woke up,
In cold sweat
Wondering where you were
Wondering where my glorified poem has gone.
But all I could see in the place of gold
Was a dull, rigged stone sleeping
Next to me
Breathing in staggered breaths
Wishing he was next to his poem.
