Reverie

~

I am a reverie


of unspoken desires


and almost-forgotten dreams;


I hold them


within me,


cupped into the


space between


who I am


and who I was;


I can’t convince you


that I am


to be taken seriously,


for only you


can decide,


and I know that


I’m not for everyone;


I’m an acquired taste,


a cup of tea


that is often


too hot


or ice-cold—


I cannot promise that


I will be


any one thing


on any given day,


but I will


be me.
