The Dreamer And The Realest

The Dreamer And The Realest

A Poem by Semaj "I AM" Allure

Sometimes I escape when it matters most


Rendered as desolately rose-colored,

Divinity is something intangible for him

but real as touch to me

As I lose normal vision, he throws  

communion on our project’s rooftop, 

for inner magic is something he could

never believe in

Facts is all he needs, 

Yup, cold hard evidence 

In a conversation, 

that's all he’s willing to work with

That's what keeps the rent paid  

Overwhelmed with responsibility

I skip to an abstract vacation while

he yells, stressing over the mundane,

overdue bills, budgets, and insurance  

In this world, I’m strange to him,

He is strange to me

When I try to follow,

our miscommunication is discouraging 

Maybe If I'd listen to my Father, I'd 

have the tools I need to be a 

realest and understand Henry,

but instead, I choose another path

However, when it comes to love,

the sacrifice we make for one another

is the bond that unites us 

Heaven told me to stay focus and

deal with life from a realistic perspective

If we break our problems in portions,

let it help prevent my great escape
