dream on the edge

dream — Nena Black

you are just a dream to me
the edge of my reality
a breath that fails beyond a gasp
a notion that exceeds my grasp
as i make my way
through life’s shades of gray
your colors burn through me like fire
but time’s intention
spites my heart’s desire

though this world we share
illusions dare
prolong our destiny
though fruition tries
to attain its prize
what’s meant to be
is meant to be

so, here i wait
both lost and found
my heart, its state,
both free and bound
your eloquent sufficiency
would distill my excessive urgency
and yet, it is this very urge
through which our lives
might thus converge

so, a dream you are
to my disdain
and a dream for now
you must remain
but, seasons change the world we see
perhaps, one day, you’ll dream of me

my fiery colors will burn their way
through all of your life’s shades of gray
you’ll grasp me without fail
you’ll breath and then exhale
maybe time’s true intention
will increase our hearts’ dimension
and the edge of this reality
is where we both are meant to be
