Dream

of peculiar flowers/like sound of laughter/fluid in words you could spell/only after lettering down/libations on territories/virgin with mystic bites/of your footsteps/creating gardens/of hope beyond tales

“Remember when we were happy and carefree
and laughed at Eric in class?”

Where did those days go?
or was it us who left?

“We are not laughing enough”

Laughter can hurt
so it doesn't come around if there is already pain

“We started paying rent”

Yes we did and we started measuring our dreams
with our hands
the (wo)man of our dreams had appeared and left and appeared and left and appeared and left and still it wasn't them

we felt our dreams had lied to us
and had the nerve to stay on in our face
telling us that it was our fault
that we didn’t dream new dreams

and when we dreamt new dreams
it was a dream in the old dream
and we cut our hair
grew it
hated it
and loved it the next day

we confuse our dreams
as our dreams play with our freedom

maybe we stopped laughing because we stopped dreaming
maybe we stopped laughing because we stopped looking for Eric

    "...the (wo)man of our dreams had appeared and left and appeared and left and appeared and left and still it wasn't them..."

    And these too
    "...we felt our dreams had lied to us
    and had the nerve to stay on in our face
    telling us that it was our fault
    that we didn’t dream new dreams..."

    I can almost feel the frustration.
    Nice!

    that was my favorite portion cos part of growing up for me is not knowing which choice to make with my hair! i swear i've done every style on earth & there are days i love it other times i hate it.
