years later

in the dream of last
night, your hair was dyed
darkest brown (when its
sandy brown was what
I knew) but I loved

you still. you looked
at (and through) me
with still-blue eyes
that spoke the chance

I lost once,
long before
I even

knew what
I had

missed

but

you reached
out arms

I could but
hope ached as
mine had ached

embracing fear
(that was my soul)
and holding peace
despite the truth

that I failed to see
(or I did see, but
would not believe):  that
you changed your hair but
still did not love me.

    Such are dreams, reaching into the deepest part of us. I love how you wrote this, admissions of honesty that make my heart ache for you, for what once was. Awesome write. Love, Shar
