Dead Dreamer

In the beginning I knew I wasn't whole.
To shed this world, I'd have to kill my soul.

Over and over my bodies breathed sighs of relief
when released from intensely mental postmortem grief.

I'd cry myself to sleep, the end just felt so real.
Nightmarish fairy tales of Love I'll never feel.

Yet dreams of death are only dreams
and life is not as finite as it seems.

    Wow! You're back and you're hitting them out of the ball park again, Yoni. It's so nice to hear you say, "life is not as finite as it seems." I am assuming the wedding went flawlessly and the honeymoon will continue for decades to come. Never again will you have to worry about "Troublesome fairytales of love (you'd) never feel." Welcome back! Much love and best wishes, Carolyn

    Sad write about not finding that one true love. Keep the metaphoric pen flowing. Sara
