Dear Love – A Poem

IMG_0530

Dear Love,

A young boy, I was
watching love on a silver screen
dreaming one day I’d grow up
You and I would meet

While puddles formed on the concrete
we’d connect beneath a streetlight
But the thought was too much for me
so I left that night

Spanning from lonely broken streets
to monster-filled seas
Everybody just said
“Eventually.”

And I wanted to give up
but they said you were something I’d need
Like the light of day
or the air I breathe

Yes, I’ve been searching
far and wide
in coffee shops
and online dating sites
I even thought
we’d met a couple times
Then I realized
I was colorblind
What I thought was red
was an empty black
Empty like my bed
Vulnerable like my back

Because hate will sometimes
wear you like a disguise
Mimic your every move
whisper the most perfect of lies

Still, I’ve persisted
running on feet gone raw
from a life of beating pavement
only to find nothing at all

And my body has crumbled, weak
My heart, empty, like my sheets
I’m tired of searching for something
I’ve only seen in my dreams
Like a kid, I must admit
I don’t believe you exist
Like the Easter bunny
or good ol’ Saint Nick

A young boy, I was
watching love on a silver screen
dreaming one day I’d grow up
You and I would meet
“Eventually.”


Thank you for reading! I hope everybody has a great weekend 🙂

Till next time,

  1. That day when we get tired
    with everything we’ve done
    dreams seem too far away
    too hard & they don’t come
    all-time we’re chasing them
    and a lot of time has gone
    cannot say how it will end
    this is something unknown
    by trying and giving the best
    believe you’ve already won!
