Random Poem:

I might never see you again.

I had another dream about you last night.
Just thought you might like to know that
I have more dreams about you now that you're gone
than I did while we were together.
I have to remind myself, daily, that its
not you I want, it's just... someone.
And when I awake from the slight nightmare
of my mother telling me- get dressed quick,
Leigh and June are coming for dinner.
You and her, coming and, I have nothing to wear.
You, who broke my heart,
             Her, who you swore was dirt beneath our feet,
and I have nothing to protect myself from your almost
certain scrutiny.
Then- I awake and thank the lord that I might never even
see you again.
And then I curse Him for that same self reason.
I might never see you again.
