Shadow of My Dreams


Shadow of My Dreams

I live in the shadow of my dreams
Mind movies that ruin my truth
They come when I wake
No longer when I sleep

I am anything inside them
I am nothing outside
A shell of what I have done
The shame of memories forgotten

The past invades too often
Leaving the future dim
I wish to have my dreams true
They only smolder as ash

The talents I let decay
Decisions made and never unmade
Pain invades my dreams
A life missed wastes away

I shall be what I will
A fool that misses nothing
Invaluable to some
Though the truth eludes them

I die in the shadow of my dreams
