Wistfulness

the things that you see

in your daymares are even worse

than the ones

in your nightmares at times,

if not outrightly

then in the grand scheme of things.

beaded scarves, raindrop earrings,

and stiletto heels that look

regal in the silver moonlight;

I am scared of anything

that costs more than I make,

I am terrified of anything

that can outlast me.

  1. Those are deep thoughts, Aaysid. It’s interesting to reflect upon, as in many ways the waking dream and the sleeping dream are very similar. I will continue to reflect upon this poem. Wonderfully created, my friend. 👏👏☺️
