Poem - Just to dream of you

Just to dream of you - Anup R

I sleep so I can dream of you
I wake up just for a glance of you
But I have to be satisfied with your look of disdain
… where have all the good times gone?

I drink, trying to forget you
I sober up just to talk to you
But I have to be satisfied with the ‘Hello’ you say …
... before you bang down the receiver
… where have all the heart 2 heart conversations gone?

I drive aimlessly …
… another futile attempt to get away
… from you and everything you mean to me
But no matter how much I try
I end up right where I began
… what’s become of all the great plans I had for my life?

So I have another drink …
And drive back home …
And fall into a restless sleep …
... so I can dream again …

-----
This is one of my old (month-old) poems ... posted this today, just coz' Keshi requested a post ... and I can't refuse someone so beautiful and charming and lovely ..... ;) ... lolz ...

Seriously speaking, I added that footnote just so that a few of my buddies such as Elaine don't fret and fume and give me a OTS (one tight slap) for not getting over my ex-flame ... :)

... I have moved on guys! ... but, I still have a bunch of unpublished poems from the messed up relationship ... so, you'll get them gradually, everytime I've got nothing better to post .. ;) lolz ...

@lady
(blushes) ... wot a gr8 compliement! ... thanks! :)

@keshi
... anything for u buddy! ... i'm never too busy for you ... :)

Ah! I have a chance!!! :)

100% moving on is impossible ... becoz' of this irritating thing called 'memories' ...

but basically, I say I've moved on when I let go of consciously holding on to those memories ... letting go of the dreams ... accepting that it'll never work out ....

I like the poem. ^^ Even though it's rather sad... but that's the beauty of it. And yeah, it can be hard to move on... but if your heart tells you to let go, then you can let go.

Take care and God bless! ^^
