Scarlet .....

a dream i dreamt(do all dreams come true)

i lay here and dream a dream
a dream of my future
a dream where i smile
a real smile not the fake one i hide behind

but my real smile
for i am the real me
in this dream
i am happy

i laugh
a laugh i haven't done in years
in this dream i live a life where i am wanted by those around me
in this dream i feel like i belong where i am

for in this dream i no longer live alone
i have a group of friends
that enjoys my company
that choose to hang with me
not as a last resort

or some cruel joke
but because they like me
if that is possible
for it was in this dream
it was wonderful

the feeling of belonging
is one i have never felt
besides in this dream
will this dream ever become true

    Madam Queen or Miss or Ms -

    Dreaming is a release, a resolution, and a preparation for that which we need to do. Check my 'Dream Pockets' and tell me what you think. Thanks for this perspective on dreaming that touches me on so many levels.

    Many of us have this dream both while asleep AND awake.....and yes one must believe it will get better, especially during the times when it just couldn't possibly be any worse.........This is written with an abundance of emotion and feeling. Well done...........marci.m. :) (Report) Reply

    Dreams are kind of fun,
    aren't they ?
    I particularly enjoy the silly ones,
    at least the ones I can remember,
    after I wake up!

    thats brilliant, it really sums up how i feel at times, isnt it really awful when you put on a fake smile and say that 'im fine'
