You Will Always Be The Dream I Don’t Tell Anyone About

You will always be the dream I want to protect, the dream I don’t want to jinx because of how beautiful it is, the dream that is engraved in my heart so no one tries to take it away from me. You’ll always be the dream I’ll keep wishing for every night before I sleep.

You will always be the dream I can’t say out loud because I’m afraid others might run after you, I don’t want anyone to know that you exist and I don’t want anyone to know why I can’t give up on you and I’m afraid if I tell them about you, they will fall in love with you too.

You will always be the dream that makes me forget about all my other dreams, the one who puts all my other dreams to shame, you’ll always be the real dream that I hide behind all my other dreams. You’ll always be the secret I don’t want to the expose and the treasure I don’t want anyone to find.

You will always be the dream that I’ll never get tired of asking for, the dream I want to dream every night, the dream I want to live every morning and the dream that keeps me dreaming.

You will always be the dream that I don’t share with my family or my friends because they will tell me I’m crazy and they will tell me to forget you – I don’t want them to belittle you and I don’t want them to wake me up from it. You’ll always be the dream I want to save from their criticism, from their judgment and from reality.

You will always be the dream I’m willing to fight for, the dream I’m willing to cross oceans for and the dream I’m willing to move mountains for. You’ll always be the dream that makes me believe I can do all these crazy things just to get to you and you’ll always be the dream that makes me believe in miracles – you’ll always be my miracle.

You will always be the dream that my reality revolves around, the dream that makes me write when I’m running out of words, the dream that makes sing when I can’t even hit the note, the dream that makes me dance when I can’t stand on my feet, the dream that keeps me smiling when my soul is weeping and you will always be the dream that makes me fight for my life when I feel like there is nothing left for me in this world to look forward to. You will be the dream I don’t want to wake up from.  TC mark

Writing. Living. Loving. Dreaming. Healing. Evolving.

If needing you is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

“Sometimes things make more sense the second time around. People change, you change and the universe changes, if we keep ourselves confined to first chances only, we will truly miss out on some of the most beautiful things in life.” — Rania Naim

The book that triggered all the pain and resentments that I have been ignoring fow awhile now. This book definitely exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!” — Anilou, GoodReads
