You, My Hopeless Dream

You, My Hopeless Dream

A Poem by Adora.xo

Kind of a stream-of-consciousness? Bleh


You said

I always know

What to say,

So let me say this…

I am too strong

To let one man

Be so                       careless,

And break me.

                                        You were never mine…

I am so hidden

Inside of myself,

I’ve forgotten

How not to be            kind.

But you were my dream…

Let me say

That I am too


To care if I                   bleed,

But have mercy…

I am fragile…

I am so far away

Inside my mind,

I thought I was unbreakable

For a                             while.

And then you came to me…

And let me say this…

That I forgot


With a single                hope

That we could be…

But you were never mine.

You said

I always knew

What to say,

So let me say this…

I am broken,

But I will be fine…

And so I will let you go

Like the hopeless dream

You were meant to be…

Because this is the right thing to say,

you're most welcome :)
This is.. absolutely amazing. Also heartbreaking, it's unbelievable how much I can relate to this poem. I love how at just the beginning and just the end you put in the "you said i always knew what to say", and i don't know if the tense of the 'know'/'knew' was changed on purpose, but either way it makes it all the more heartbreaking to see how things have changed. Lovely write
