Open-eyed Dreams

An eventful evening.
But now everything was calmed.
And from my little hooded cave,
I watched you sleep.

And what filled me with awe:
the person you were and the person you will be,
I could see.

I didn’t want to think.
I wanted to feel.
So I did.
And your face faded in the darkness so I couldn’t make it out.
But I knew you were there.

    is this about your brother, perhaps?

    No it’s not.

    But, it could be,
    and that’s what’s important.

    In all honesty,
    I don’t really know WHO this is about.

    It was a thought or a dream or a wish I had.
    Maybe it’ll come true.
    Maybe it already has.

    As Life’s ultimate pessimist at this exact moment in life, I’d like to say that i don’t think the sort of ecstacy is possible if you’re speaking of being in the presence of another human being…
    (but that’s me being a pessimistic leech, sucking the beauty out of life.)

    i really like the idea of it though… and i really like your poetry.
