I Knew You

I Knew You

A Poem by Calypso

I had dream you knew me, and I knew you

We were never able to say goodbye,

but we knew there were too many galaxies through

We were in love, not much to deny

 

I knew you and you knew me

We saw forever down the road, the house we wanted to own.

There was a night we wanted to flee

The car we tried out together, the friends I have to atone

 

I showed you how the stars could come together

You showed me the world’s deeper than my understanding

Your touch on my skin felt like a feather

I taught you music, you taught me magic, notwithstanding

 

We, together, I knew you and you thought you knew me

I missed that exit, we could have been…

The end came at the birch tree

I let it go, I let it die, and we remember when

"I had *a* dream you knew me, and I knew you" unless you left it out on purpose, which if that's the case I apologize for bringing it up.

This is lovely, "what if's" are so hard. You capture that wistful feeling of old forgotten lovers so well, and I like the almost whimsical word choice. Thank you for sharing.

And thank you for reading this and commenting!
Lovely. Great job with this one.
Every stanza elaborates on the dream delicately, which is even more impacting than if you spelled it out too quickly. Thank you for sharing this.

Funny how we can look at the past and see the people we lost. I like the story in the poem. The poem felt like a tale of a wish and some hope. A sad ending to a excellent poem.
