The Street Where You Live[d]

Posted: October 24, 2017 in Uncategorized

In my dreams i revisit old haunts
walk the streets of my boyhood
sensing i have lived too long

I feel

I review my life with acceptance
and a kind of peace

Things were different of course
they always are in dreams
crazy how the present
rearranges the architecture of the past

I am

And so this is how it looks now
this is the world your life has made
this is how you tell yourself the truth

Even asleep you sense how real it is
these images these memories ignite longing


I can feel the sun’s heat on my skin now
i felt it then
the light was always available
though the warmth was subject to seasonal changes

to go
