it is at these moments

Posted to Action Poetry




it is at these moments
i know how alike we are
you tell me things
about myself i'd never ever believe
these things i brush off
with a shrugged shoulder
and a snickered
thank you
you tell me you have faith in me
you tell me that you see...

and i stand helpless
knowing you're dreaming
knowing there's nothing here
but i can't convince you
of what i know is true

and then there you are
more than i imagined possible
more than i hoped for
just so much more...
and when i try to tell you
that's when you disappear
fade
fight me with your disbelief

yes
it is at these moments
i know how alike we are
loved for envisioned wonders
we'd never dare believe in
