I know it was only a dream Yet you must really understand How great it was to talk with you To go back to when we were best friends I know it was only a dream In the moments it felt so real Looking each other in the eyes Casting away the barriers in how we feel I know it was only a dream In being close enough to hold you again Being able to laugh and cry together Two broken hearts together learning to mend I know it was only a dream From it I am now awake Wondering if there is time yet for us Or if it is truly just too late It was only a dream
Scenes from a dream Sometimes become reality Of a future unhappened wrapped in uncertainty Two of us becoming close Taking in each other’s secrets Trust blossoming between us A relation that we will never regret Looking into each other’s eyes Laying just moments away Feelings of love and affection Growing stronger with each word we say I do not remember who moved first When we finally embraced Bodies drawing closer Bringing us face to face Gazing deeply into each other’s eyes With a flame not seen before A slight gasp falls from my lips Involuntarily admitting I want more I reach up slowly Part the hair away from your face Taking in every minute detail of the moment Etching each moment with grace You bring yourself to me Your lips touching mine Twin souls blazing together Forging a connection divine It was just a mere moment But I felt that time stopped for hours We gave each other the chance To enjoy our wildflowers
Blindsided you say So sudden and out of nowhere I’ve rewound those words in my mind Realizing with each and every pass Just how much you didn’t know about me How much you chose not to care or acknowledge I feel we were friends Ones that played a chance of falling in love I see it so clearly now You never wanted to see those deeper darker parts of me You only wanted an affectionate shell Something to show off Something to possess An existence Survival If you would have taken the time then Spoke to me the flaws you chose to ignore Maybe things could be different Maybe we never would have shared this dance at all I am not without fault as well I should have spoken up too Pleaded that the depths of my soul needed more But I didn’t I fell for a dream I wanted to make you happy Even if it meant sacrificing what I wanted I dared that you would grow to want those parts of me too We were wrong Locked into patterns we traced before Doomed to repeat the mistakes of old A pair of lives we hoped to escape But we didn’t I honestly feel I tried But my silence could not make you want to feel My coldness made you long for what you really need So we drifted apart I can see this now I admit there is sadness in this A time shared one could see as wasted But if we learn our lesson from this Looking back it might be the most important time of our lives Right now It will feel bad to know that I love you I am just not in love I want you to be happy I want you to be loved and cherished Even if it isn’t with me I love you so much I need to let you go I only plead to your heart Can you do the same for me?
My dreams are so vivid
I feel them even now
Deny in them I cannot
Only need to figure out how
I recall the feeling of warmth
Your hair on my shoulder
Trusting me in your quiet sighs
Safe feelings of slumber take over
I can picture every detail
You lying there in my arms
Knowing with no doubt in my heart
I will protect you from harm
I feel your breathing
Your body as it slowly melts into mine
Enjoying our rest of the evening
Until we wake my sunshine
What does it mean
When you invade my dreams
Playing out events
That may never be seen
Even though it's simple
Going for a walk
Listening to one another
Hearing us talk
Or just hopeful thinking
Either way I will take them
It so beats just drinking
A friend you shall have
It is what I wish to be
But know I will do whatever
You would have of me
Shoulder to cry on
Sanctuary to be had
Person to rely on
These things I offer you
And the heavens above
For the least I ever do
Is look at you with love
It is only a thought in my head
How can it be trouble?
Giving breath to thoughts
A life to life
Imagining those first steps
Shyly waiting by the path
Waiting for you to come by
Not a simple interaction between two friends
I am still guarded
For you to make that first move
We could shatter our expectations of life
We could damn our souls further to hell
It isn’t an easy choice
It isn’t fair
But life has brought us here
Just to the end of the gravel road
Waiting for our turn on the swings
I am kicking off July by accepting Tammy’s challenge over at https://tamelansmile.com/. So without further delay, lets begin with the random number Alexa has given me of 21.
Today’s question: Whom would you invite to an imaginary luncheon, and why?
Without a doubt, I would go with the person I would most like to get to know better. She is a friend of mine from work, who, like me, has some struggles with life. We both have big hearts and care probably a bit to much about what other people have to say, when they see us chatting casually as one or the other happens by.
I would love to know more about the details of her story, how life was as the little sister, how she felt about life growing up, and hearing about how life went sideways in marriage as well. We both share that sad tragedy as well, and are managing the best we can. One could say that I must be doing well as I did get remarried, but yet there are times when I wonder if I did so out of sense of security, versus challenging the ideals of what a deeper relationship could be.
I would want to know her story if she would so wish to tell it, and possibly become the best friend she ever had. Not to just be some blind champion of her station, but an advocate for finding what she need to enjoy life as well. It is the one thing I wish for all people to be honest. I might not be the best facilitator of results, but i can encourage a mindset to place one into a position to succeed if they desired to.
It would be fun to discuss the deeper things, into our faith and beliefs we hold most resolute. And also to understand another’s point of view as well. There are so many trials and tribulations for everyone to bear, and learning how people have previously experienced things, can help protect for a better future.
So many things I would like to ask about and say from my experience as well. She is a fun, courageous, loving person, that I would definitely enjoy the chance to explore.
