A Dream That FadedA Poem by Birdman313
going deep into a dream to search for the poetry queen
We meet at a Poetry Reading months ago not knowing if we would ever meet again,
Not knowing anything about one another.
She had only seen me at a Poetry Reading and heard me read once or twice
who's counting anyways,
She walked into a Poetry Reading 7 month's later she didn’r recognize me at first.
As I got up to view the drawings on the walls I walked around the corner are eyes met we spoke and then paused for a moment ,
She smiled and said don't I know you haven't I heard you read some of your Poems , I shrug my shoulders and said you may have.
Then she giggled and name the places of the readings I just said ok because at that time I was more into getting my relationship back together,
We talked about the things we have been doing the ups and downs trying to get some personal issues that had been holding us back.
Then she ask me to sit with her and listen to the readings ,
While the Poets came up on stage one by one to spit there words we talked , played with are phones and talked some more.
I was lonely and I felt like I found someone to talk to that maybe was interested in me,
I finally found someone who felt like they were interested in my poems,
I finally found someone who smiled at me .
I finally found someone who I thought maybe wanted to get to know me,
I finally found someone who wanted to sit with me.
We causally talked ,laugh and enjoyed the Poetry Reading or was it each others company,
Then she got a text and said she had to go and she would let me know about readings that she will be at.
Then that's when I realized the dream was over,
For 60 minutes I felt like a person ,like a man , like someone wanted to be with me and not just for sexual pleasure or to benefit there own needs.
Now I'm back at being that lonely man again at another Poetry Reading , watching couples enjoy the Poets ,
Why do I get teased like this ,
Why can't I have a Poetic friend who will be at these events with me.
Why ask Why just relive the dream cause thats all it was.
