Dreams Apart


a bouquet of lilies on a black background

We’ve been fightin’

for so long, I forget

why we started.

Goin’ on for way too long.

It’s been years since we spoke.

You won’t talk to me, and

I don’t know why.

freshness white lily

Time to let it go.


I’m not too bright.


I need to let go –

But I don’t know how.

White Lily flowers

We shared rainbows and dark skies –

But it’s been so long.

Nothing left to share.

It’s all been said.

My final plea on this page –

more words taking up space.

Will you bother

to read them?

Flowers and buds of lilies on a black background

I know you don’t have time –

too busy fightin’.

We couldn’t wait to share dreams

of brighter futures

and white picket fences.

We were so young then.

Then we learned

not all dreams come true.

White Lily flowers

Inside our broken dreams,

I still think of you.

I wonder how it started.

It’s been so long.

Then I wonder how you’re doin’.

And I know you don’t have time,

but in case you do –

I’m on the other side –

freshness lily with buds

Still fightin’.

    1. Thank you for your beautiful and kind words, Cezane. πŸ™‚ They also say that distance makes the love grow stronger. I still haven’t decided if it’s true. Perhaps one day I’ll know, and be able to share. πŸ™‚ Wishing you a beautiful day!

        The distance between Michelle and I is still miles apart.
        What i can say is, to me… distance does make the love stronger. Seals the bond. Cheers! – Cezane
