Too Late for Dreams

Here's another older one to round out the 5 for tonight :3 I'll post more tomorrow, maybe I'll even write a fresh one for you~*


Dreams boil in my chest

Hot and fierce they burn my flesh

My heart pounds and quivers

Desire screams out who I want to be


Fear stifles the light

Who once I was, will it quell my sight?

Mistakes of the past haunt my thoughts

Is it too late to become who I should be?


Broken pot is never truly mended

Please say this tar can be rescinded

Shadows seek in brightest day

Can I escape the dark that calls me...


My fingers seek to grasp the blue

Elusive, taunting, escaping to

Places so close past reach

Is it too late for me?


My heart near bursting

Desire un-quenched keeps searching

But the dreams behind my eyes

Stab like splinters in my mind.


The night comes to my door

I don't want to open it anymore

I wish I could let the clock rewind

Because I can't help but sometimes wonder

If perhaps it's already too late to dream...
