Love of Dreams & Reality

I remember waking up Monday mornings and thinking “I get to see her once again”
I always used to think to myself “Wow, this girl makes my day”
Well very little did I know?
That she would make my life
I now lay here writing this poem about her
Not sure if it’s a poem at all
Just my feelings in a line per line segment
When I see her my heart beats fast
Pounding and pounding
I feel this weird sensation running down my back
It’s weird but very reassuring
It assures me that what we have its real
That this isn’t all a dream to me
If this is a dream, its not one I would like to wake up to
If I woke up I don’t know where I’d be
In the cold depths of alleys I used to be in
The depression and sadness of being alone everyday
Friends not knowing what else to tell me
They say the right words but I just don’t listen
Losing all hope in the world
But I sleep here dreaming of my perfect reality
Hoping that it’s not a dream
Some things are too good to be true
But maybe that’s what you need to put a little hope in your life again
So in this case if I wake up from this crude reality dream
I will wake up seeing her face everywhere I go
But when I see her in the real reality
The one that’s not a dream
I’ll look at her with the eyes of love and regret
The regret of waking up that Monday morning
Not ever dreaming of her again
But as I walk down these streets in my dream
I realize that I won’t ever wake up
I won’t wake up because I found my love
I found my life
She is my dream
But she’s better than my dreams
She’s a reality.

"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot
The world forgetting by the world forgot
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd"

This was interesting, and just so sweet. It radiates with a love that is just so strong and real and pure. Well done.

You are so lucky. You have the gift of feeling this way. And you don't have to write much to convey something as sincere as this emotion.
