I Dreamt Of You Last Night

Soroush Karimi

My brain betrays me

With dreams of you;

A love long gone,

A causality in the wake

Of my destruction.

Why now?

What is the purpose?

To remind me

Of the mistakes I’ve made?

The beauty I let

Slip through my fingers?

You are the regret I carry with me

Reminiscing on all that you are

And all you made me.

The purest thing my hands ever touched,

Terrifyingly so.

I wasn’t ready for you,

I wasn’t the man you needed me to be.

And now I’m left wondering

Why you still haunt my mind

From time to time.

Is there some plan

That is beyond me

Or is this just a reminder
