Her dreams dissolved like sugar, just not as sweet
Listening loosely, she was warned about exposure
Impulsive by design, she raised her head and spewed
The dreams she stole from others
Her teeth ripped and shredded them
The teeth of a professional cynic
What lay hidden in dreams
Tempting the elements.
A believer in dreams in a time long gone
Her journeys pressed harder around her
With no air left outside her dreams.
The sacrifice was heeded.
Dreams just take up space, she said
And I don’t have any left.
