Yesterday’s Dream

You filled my heart with thoughts of you
So fears couldn’t find any space to breathe

You found me when I thought I had hidden,
Hidden from the world and it’s false illusions…
With you, I never had to think,
Heartfelt conversations flowed in between
***
Like a dream, you were too good to be true,
I felt the urge to touch you, to know if I could reach you,
I found myself falling before I knew I had begun,
Each night I grew impatient, for your dream to reappear.
***
I dreamed more and more of your sweet touch
And less and less nightmares appeared,
You filled my heart with thoughts of you
So fears couldn’t find any space to breathe.
***
But in my wishes to make you more real,
I forgot it was all just a dream,
And before I knew what had happened,
You disappeared like yesterday’s dream…


I have been thinking about dreams and nightmares.. and how easily they touch us even when they aren’t real…and somehow i like the phrase ‘yesterday’s dream’ and all the emotions and memories it can hold within..

  1. Home run. When In started reading this piece, I was going to tell you my favorite stanza was the first. But after reading the second, I changed my mind. And it just kept getting better and better. Perfect finale to end this piece. Also loved this line —-> You filled my heart with thoughts of you. Great job.
