In Hopes For Better - Poem by Lexy Sogl

I wish

I could utter to no one in particular
I did something
To shoo away that dire dream

The dream I assumed
No—I denied
To be possible

The dream he knew
was his only reality

That I hadn’t
Simply watched
From my outsized car window

shielded from the poverty
comfortably, in the bubble that shielded me

I couldn’t touch his fear
So I hid in a place—only I recognize

A place where I cradled
His mutilated heart

Where my embrace
Mended his bad memories

For in this world
What we call reality

will never allow me to

merge his soul
with my sympathy

for this bungled but imperative wire
separates us
from meeting
face to face

I only know him
By what the pupil of my lime eyes
confirm me of

so please
don't think of that black balloon
that keeps you from lifting

think of the day
nobody will feel
the blows of the corrupt

think of
*Special Message: In hopes of a better future- I hope to meet you mystery boy
& i'm sorry for what I know you had to go through today (06-10-07)
I'll never forget you- what you taught me in the brief seconds our eyes met
This one's for you
