"Dreaming Out Loud"

A Poem by KalebG (Cry Faux)

'Within you I lose myself. Without you I find myself wanting to become lost again"


“Dreaming Out loud”

By: Kaleb G.Berry

                I am here sitting in the grass with my head against the ground, looking at the clouds that distorts the sky as time passes by.

A sigh came from my voice, like if I where remembering something or someone.

Instantly I sat up, to catch my thoughts, trying to figure out my own personality.

Pulling out my black leather wallet, I opened it, looking at the money I have.

Viewing a one, five, and a ten dollar bill, I was jinxing the fact that I was broke.

I checked my reward cards in the dense slots and, crossing over to the next, a picture past my eye.

I looked straight in to the bright photo, acting like I had poor eye sight.

I saw me, holding a girl smiling while the same actions are happing to me. Her with both arms around me, putting on a face I never seen her do in a long time.

I did not want to believe that it was me that held this gorgeous female by her waist; only to question why did place the picture, something remarkable like this, in to my wallet.

Closing my eyes and immediately I remembered, everything we done and said to each other.

My heart knew her name, because I am the one who placed her there.

I laughed in tears, knowing that I missed her so many days and nights; always saying I will never forget her.

Thinking on how I even managed to love her, almost more than my own being. 

Resting my eyes once more I, made my memories like a dream and clearly I was seeing, each year, day and, hour I imaged about her; or experience with her.

Instantly I felt calm and secure.  All my mind could do is be relaxed, from trepidation, resentment, and soreness, whatever it was that shattered my heart.

When I first really met her for the first time, I still had heart of black ice sheering over my body.

Being told that if I was something else, people would like me. Completely over whelmed by that mind set, I began trying to be like everyone else.

The hardship of this task was so difficult, seeming like I had a mask of somebody else’s face that took hold of my own. Held down by this effect made my nightmares come true. 

People still did not like me, and I was considered annoying and a joke. Each insult I thought shorten my life, or made me lose my brain cells like a plain cigarette.

Anger took over as I began tenth grade that year, becoming labeled as “Not to be bothered” ; holding all in all this rage inside I had became a silent person.  

The first day isolating myself from the people who thought believed in you the most, and there in a class where arithmetic was taught, I sat next to a person, who happened to save my mind and life from being corrupted.

Being herself she took her curiosity and made it into words that people would not read.  Lifting my head, I notice she was talking to a being like me, and without having the strength to look up, I replied with words of doubt.

She picked up her own sword and fought through my heart, looking for a reason why this storm eradicated my soul.

Soon after she killed the last beast, and she won.

Bleeding inside from cuts she made, all I needed then was healing.

I disarmed my anger and was forced to look into the eyes of the girl.

After that day, I held the words spoken from to heart, and began to change from the inside.

Everyday her advice led me to my own self, and in next to no time I did not care what anyone thought.

Whatever she thought about me, all I cared for.

I never surround myself with empty people, only with people who have enough heart to stand up to the fiercest fires.

Becoming friends and close I shared everything to her and all she did was listen even if it was random theory.

The chain of memory broke and I stumbled upon the place I still lay upon; a hill with firm grass. I opened my eyes and four tears broke out from the daydream. Peace, joy, life and most of all love.  

 I gave attention to the photo once more and put it back in the case of my wallet; placing the wallet in my back pocket.

Knowing I will see her again, in a few days makes me miss her like she where gone for a year.

Significant that everything would be ok, I went to sleep with a smile no one can take from me.  

“Love is only a straight line of hope, go through it without fear”
