soul mates

What can I say? Nothing!

The dream I dreamed is over now,
All dreaming’s at an end.
I’d like to thank those dear to me,
For making me their friend.

I dreamed that I was famous,
Under another sky.
But the devil stole my cotton clouds,
As away with hope they fly.

The fantasy is brought to a close,
Life’s stage has curtain drawn.
My dream will die a painful death,
From evening until dawn.

The dream was only ever that,
And no more than it seems.
My nightmare has come to claim it,
As the night claims hollow screams. 1 comment
