The You I used to know, by *****ELIZABETH***** Subscribe to rss feed for *****ELIZABETH*****

Last night the you I used to know 
appeared mysteriously in a dream.
And gently whispered in my ear just so
that things were never as they seem.

Intuitively you imparted, “I feel your pain within me;
and at night, my vision is blurred by your tears.”
You spoke to my soul with unspoken clarity 
and calmly washed away my fears.

A familiar light that shone brightly in your eyes
enlightened my heart as if to say, ‘I understand…
everything you feel inside; I realize how hard you’ve
All doubt departed with a touch of your hand.

Then I awoke despondent to discover
it was only a vision of what I wish to be.
The you I know in a waking world cannot see
the me I keep undercover.
