Long Lost Dream

8/11/2005 | 1705 views | Category: NeoBlack Poems | Tags: Love Poem,

What happened to my long lost dream
I lost it on the tip of my tongue
What happened to the hopeful things
I dreamed of when I was young
It use to feel so familar
I thought it would always last
I don’t know where it is now
I must have left it in the past
Dreams are suspossed to inspire
But mine just cause a hole
Cause I know I’ll never make it
To that anticipated goal
So I’m left here these hopeless days
Just staring at the wall
Drifting to an endless gaze
With a lost dream left to recall
I think it started fading
About this time a year ago
it’s starting to become clearer now
It all started with you, this I know
I never said those 3 words
I guess you needed them more than me
Now all you have are 3 things
Space, time, and my vain pleas
Yes, I remember it all so well now
After that my grades began to slip
LIfe seemed way to unbearable
So I’ll just let the ink continue to drip
I opened up and reached out my hand
I showed you everything
But you set it all ablaze
What about my sacred dream
Now I can’t help but gander
On your hand, I see your new ring
It’s taking the place of my old one
That’s what happened to my dream
