819 Dreams [27 November 2007]

I want to disappear in dreams
escape these fathomless emotions
that torment me when I try to forget them.
I do not understand why I must feel
why I must yearn for something, someone
who I cannot want.

Take me into the arms of that vision
that place where I am with someone
who cares for me in return.
Let me follow them into the endless night
let me forget to breathe
so that I may continue on in stasis
lost among those dreams that promise me
I will find what it is I seek.
