Music (A Dream I Once Had) - Poem by AimeeLeigh Olsen

I cannot embrace the feeling I used to live for.
It's not there anymore, it's not where it should be.
In my soul, lighting the fire that used to be in my eyes.
It's somewhere in the wind, sometimes I feel it rush past my ears.
It taunts me, haunts me.
I can only feel the nothingness it left.
Who knew you could feel nothingness?
It doesn't make sense how something so palpable
Could vacate, evaporate.
I don't think I felt it leave
It was, rather, a slow realisation
That you can lose something that you thought was so deeply ingrained.
It's asleep, my soul.
The dream of you used to be my only waking remedy.
