I love her mind, but not in the slightest did I know her name.
She was the blank face in my dreams.
I always played the guessing games trying to find out how to approach her. Life may be a struggle. Sticks and stones do inflict pain.
But the word rejection tore me apart.
Reminiscing about the past me wondering if I could get past the old me.
Shy, quiet only kept myself. Me, myself and I until one of us gave up on chasing the dream.
So many ladies in the world but so few of my dreams. No matter what I had in my thoughts everything about her had fascinated me.
My minds infatuated. Imagine me seeing her what would I say. Nevermind that its time for bravery.
Excuse me nameless beauty can I please have sometime.
Could you walk on water while you wait for me.
So, I can simply see if your as Godsent as you seem. Hi pardon me I don't mean to be rude. I'm Alex and you would be?
Then right at that moment my questions are answered. My fate stops procastinating as I ask in the near
future would you like to be my wife. Being a very nice dude isn't in.
she looks at me like I'm insane.As she puts me down.
I find out that she didn't know a thing.
The many hours I spent daydreaming about her trying figure
what we could have been.
I don't want to regret this so I stop myself from putting up a fight.
I concede. I call it a night. I'll give it another try tonight.
Searching in the dark like a cop with a flashlight.
Hoping to find the girl of my dreams.

    Stop dreaming Alex - let it go! Open your eyes! There is at least one girl smiling at you - but your dreams get in the way! You can't see her. She's there. As for poetry - two words of advice: Love sucks. Everyone has it. and in every case it is unique. You have such a great talent - use it to write about things you find in life - not the things you want. And never, ever, ever, want love. Because it won't come until you stop looking for it. Catch 22 Alex... (Report) Reply

    Dreams are found to be really interesting, only in dreams. moment you you return to the real world, it is only a bewilderment, mostly. Yet, making it another one's experience, no other person than a poet can do. Great, you did it. I enjoyed. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    And you will, dear Alex, in due time! Dreams do come true many times and then we will be surprised! In the World of possibilities, anything is possible! Keep that in mind, my dear friend! Where you are right now, I was many times and I survived! If you read my poem titled: IN PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, whenever time permits, then you will realize that you are not the only one! Soon enough, you will find the key to open the handcuff that has been you down to the chair of the past. You will be a free and joyful new person happy to be able to move on! 10+++ Keep inspiring the World with your talented works! Love and Peace for always! Romeo from New York City! ... (Report) Reply
