As you dream

As you dream


If by chance you remember me

Do you think kindly of that child?

The lie I led designed to protect me from you

Still I yearn and I still crave

To live a life I cannot live

For fear of hurting those I cannot hurt

Another lie to stop the tears

That want to flow, to soothe lost years

Reclaim a time when summer never ends

I watch removed, abstracted mind

Ponders youth, my youth was blind

It was never you - the coward there was me

And as you dream if I should happen by

I'd like to think we'd still say 'hi!'

And laugh as if the years had never been...


I read V.O.W by Gabriel Duncan, and then wrote this.
