Be Who I Dream, a poem by Drem

I don’t think I posted this one. I’m super tired. I want to go to sleep. My cat is mad I’m typing because it’s waking him up.

Also, I inserted the whole middle part just now and it essentially changed the entire poem. And then I changed a lot more. I admit I have no idea what I’m doing.

 

Be Who I Dream, a poem by Drem

2013

“Blocks make up the exteriors

of the house

you built around yourself.

I wish I had a gust of wind

to destroy, make active

the people within.

You especially…

Wake up! Wake up!
Be my dream.

Wake up from your sleep

and touch me.

From the autumn light

outside

shining in

you look a little familiar.

You look like someone I saw in a mirror.

Must have been a long time ago.

In any case, it doesn’t matter.

I believe in you.

You’re not alone.

Reach for the window

little girl.

You’re trapped,

but I don’t know it.

You’re trapped right in your own bed.

Get out.

Use your feet to push yourself

out of your own self-doubt.

Dramatically go charge over lakes and streams

little heroine,

leaving a trail of ripples in the water.

Displace the sand, whisk away the leaves.

Let go of who you are

and be who I dream.

Let go of the chains in your mind.

Let go of the person you were

or who you want to be.

Be  the person who I dream you to be.

It’s better than you could ever imagine.

I promise.”

  1. I like this,

    “Displace the sand, whisk away the leaves. Let go of who you are
    and be who I dream”.

    Who do you want to be Drem? A writer/poet? You are now…I would love to see your collection published in print… Jx

      1. Yes…so do I. ‘They’ keep telling me it is a ‘choice’. I wrote this week on my friends Facebook Page ‘Mindfully Happy Quotes’, to a post about choosing to be happy, ‘how?’. She responded ” decide to choose to look on the bright side … or in other words dont let the buggers get you down!”. In my case it is a person and a long arduous process that’s getting me down…but right now I am incredibly sad and the situation is out of my control…but, ‘this too shall pass’. I just wish it would hurry the fuck up! I’m over it. Jx
