Random Poem:

Nonexisting Smiles

I used to dream of you
and wake with a smile.
Now I am with a sour taste.
my dreams have shifted
to just shapes
and colors
where are you if you're not in my dreams?
I wonder if
you were even imagined.
since you were never real.
real with me
real with life
real with yourself.
Look my way in a dream
and exist.
