Dreams - Poem by Holly Gargus

you with your hopeless dreams and I with my dreamless hopes,
we were never meant to last,
only with one another long enough to leave a scar,
I suppose it is better that we are apart,
you desired freedom and I desired more.

I feel the cold soon approaching,
with every cool wind I miss your warmth.
But I realize all that I ever loved was the lie.

You could paint a lie like no one else.
The beautiful portrait in my head was never real
just like all that we shared.

I have my memories and the painful lessons they taught me.
This is all I need to continue on,
worry not for I will prevail.
I am far stronger than you ever could have imagined.
