Dreamcatcher

For him, I’ll never stop wishing on a star

And so I cling on, to every poem, as if it were his hand or his very kiss reaching from the dark

For you, I keep your rhyme in my mind like a dreamcatcher hanging to keep out the harm

And so I place them in the very center of my heart

For me, your words are my only creed

And so I place them in between my every heartbeat

For us, the moments are worth every dream

And so I rest my eyes, behind the sorrow and cries and convince myself it’s exactly what I need

For her, I pray she finds her own feet

And so I settle my rage and then remember my age and offer her some shelter from the sea

For all involved, it’s a treacherous land

And so I shine a light, and pass up the fights, and offer my best apology

But for only you, my longing never is through

And so my love expands every dimension and every galaxy
