i dream of love

if i were

to have

waited

for that one

i heard

spoken of

in dreams

one who was

could be

perfect

mine

i do not

believe

in

fate

but

in dreams

i forget

i hear

a voice

a man

i rebel

bisexual

polyamorous

that i was

a single

male voice?

i sneer

at what

i assume

is my

subconscious

laugh

internally

hysterical

and that

is

the point

is it not?

that story

on repeat

in my dreams:

i was born

in darkness

yet

not in

a void

ground

beneath my feet

i was told

there was

someone

waiting

for me.

told little

secret

riddles

to help

me

find them

and with

these gifts

i fled

running past

the garden

that represented

him

and into

the deepening

dark.

in this dream

i was given

the promise

of perfect

love

and i

stood up

and looked

around

saw the

muted

unknown

beauty

of that

story

held it

hold it

close

ALWAYS

saw

the fire

the rising

waters

falling

earth

the ice

spreading

and took

a deep

breath

and ripped

my mind

away

from love

and ran

for life

and the world instead.
