You Are My Dream.

You are a dream,

Loitering in my subconscious,



For me to awaken,

When I would be filled with fleeting contentment.


I want to admire you from afar,

To dwell in your mystery,

To ponder on the unknown.


I do not want to come too close,


I will keep my distance,

As I watch you,

As you burn hot like a flame in the depths of my mind.


Fear mixed with longing grip me tightly,

Rendering me immobile,

As I watch you from the outside.


I will not come close.

You will remain a dream to me.
