Dream Girl


so there we were,

you -dreaming about someone else

me – tracing the arms of a walnut tree until it bloomed

into poetry

i day dreamed about 

her,

you know 

that girl you thought 

you saw in 

me

the one who would be 

perfect

for your two story home 

that little 

wash and wear wife… 

i could never be

so i walked away

not because 

i didn’t love you

because

Oh, how i did

but simply, because i wasn’t 

her

i was  the one

hiding

outside your dream

whispering 

to leaves of pages

as they turned past

us

the girl who waved

 goodbye

with a pen in her hand

the one

you couldn’t

see

  1. Beautiful poem Kae! The tragedy you describe happens too often. In the end your poem is one of liberation as the women declares who she really is. I want to dance as she names and discovers her true self.☺💟
