I am your forgotten dream

We met at a different time We fell in love deeply But time wasn’t on our side Personal matters accrued Parting with promises made Sealed with a passionate kiss That left me breathless Yearning for your tenderness of touch You became my reason to live for I longed for the time to be reunited I counted down the many days and nights Until you come home into my arms forever I dreamt of us in splashing joy I giggled at times when dreaming of fun things That we will be doing together in time I entrusted my life on promises made by love The date we set to be reunited has come Oh how I’ve waited too long My darling I cannot wait any minute longer Excitedly I set out and waited for you There I sat in the garden Under the pale moonlight My heart’s beating emotions of joy Until I was kissed by the morning sunrise Scampering mind with confusion Delicate flowers greeted me calmly Gathering my thoughts orderly I found no prints of you around You never showed up Your kiss and promises were all empty Where I burned and trusted you heartily Now this pain I feel is breathlessly choking me I can feel the light in my soul slowly fade away I am no longer living I am your forgotten dream Kissed by false promises Akkina 2/12/21

So beautifully written and well expressed I could see the young woman waiting anxiously for a love that had forgotten her. There is such great emotion here. Well done. God Bless, JB

Oh this is sad Akkina, How can one do this to a person in love, the one you have promised a forever love, to wait for him and then you are greeted by a rising sun, hope this is fiction, you are too sweet to have had this done to you for real! Hugs and love, Jennifer.

It's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word. We are all screaming inside, but we can't be heard... I'm hearing you...

Quite an emotional write Akkina, sadly it wasnt the ending that you were expecting, but sometimes life is like that. Hope you're well. Tom

Oh my this is so sad, deep and emotional dear sweet Kina... you have captured very well all those feelings of longing and waiting eagerly for that particular moment of his arrival as promised, and it just doesn't happen. Unkept promises are heartbreaking indeed. Great expressions dear... Hugs ~ Ani

Such striking emotions seep from these expressive lines, Akkina. The contrast between excited love full of promise, and the moment of heartbreak is ably tackled. Regards // paul

I think most of us have at one time trusted the wrong people. But we live on and do better. We learn through life's lessons. Panagiota
