I had a dream that held me fast
In darkness prison seems so vast

I saw the person I wanted to see
Just wishful thoughts of who I should be

But when I awoke, I realized the cost
Of waiting for what was already lost

For now I am just a fragment of dreams
Forgot in the haze of waking, it seems

And though I try to remember the person I saw
The mirror reminds me, he wasn't me at all

*For Debbie's 'What do you make of this' contest
