ships that sail

i remember
that night
three years ago
or so

i woke
shivering
cold
face wet

a dream

Etched

in my mind

of blue eyes

ships that sail

yellow dresses

changing cloth

and a smile
that would break
my soul

i fought
chose my own
path

chose to tear
myself
from fate

and the dream came

i woke
tried to smile
found myself lacking

shut my eyes
and made myself
a secret promise

to protect that smile

and fight for love

always.
