Poem
Once Often Upon A Dream

I dreamt of you
once. No,
that’s a lie. I dream
of you often. I
used to 
wonder if I
played a part in
your dreams too.
Of course not.
I dream of you
to escape my
reality, and
yours is
far better than
mine could
ever be. You have
no need for me
in your world.
You come back
to my thoughts
as you always
have. Like a
Disney movie.
Out of mind, with
familiarity
at a moments
notice. You are
my prince
but I am your
Maleficent –
casting shadow
of doubt
over those who
flaunt their
happiness. But
it’s different
with you. Your
life is a  fairytale.
While I sit
and cry for
you in my
nightmares.
