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.

  1. Beautiful,
    …… You have left A fingerprint behind, or footprint, yet Always remember wherever you have walked someone else has already trodden-whatever your fingers have touched another’s fingers have also make your mark on this planet one to last more than your legacy *** thank you I’ll will think again of your writings👏

  2. The more I think
    the more I wonder
    The more I understand
    The more I ponder
    The more love I show
    The more darkness will grow
    Only you can save your soul
