    I dreamed of you
    One too many in the past

    And you kept me awake
    Late,at night
    You made me cry
    Myself to sleep

    And the sighs
    I remember

    I used to think to myself
    Why does this have to happen
    With such a sad ending?

    Last night
    I dreamnt of you
    And I

    And revealing
    What my heart was conceiling

    My mind lied to me
    So many times
    Telling me

    I was over you
    Saying to me
    You'll get over it

    But in time
    I stood still

    And I began to heal
    I began to move on
    I began to live

    And without you
    In my life

    To depend on
    To talk to
    To hold

    I quieted you
    And held you so deeply
    In to my private thoughts

    So preciously and so delicately
    Inner twined

    Loves potion
    Had concocted
    A poison

    That made me perish
    To fall so deeply in love

    With you
    To deeply regret

    Still leaving from you
    But you know I needed time away

    To see where I wanted to be
    You did too

    And now I know

    If I should ever come back to you
    It would only be for one night

    I could never stay with you any longer
    And it sadens my heart
    To think of it

    I dreamnt of you
    Last night

    And,
    We lade in eachothers bed
    We wanted eachother so bad

    It made me stand so still
    It's been two years
    Since then

    I still can't believe
    That you hold me in your
    Secret treasures

    I stood so still
    When I woke up

    I regret moving too fast
    I stand so still
    Like on the shore

    The sand to the ocean
    And in the midst of the breeze
    Waiting for a message in a bottle

    Under the sunset
    I see you
    I feel you
    I believe you
    I want to cling to you
    I want to retrieve you

    I don't want to be decieved by you
    So I stand so still
    And my heart melted in your hands
    Last night
    I dreamnt
    As we forgot and forgave.
    My heart stood so still
    My heart still stood still
    And I still,stood still
    I stood still
    I stand still
    I stand still

    Every so often, one of you poets touches me
    in a way that tears well up -

    Storm, I have a 4yr. thing I have recently ( finally )
    gotten over and this poem is the blood of my experience.

    I too stood still, and that's when I moved the furthest.

    thank you for articulating this kind of love.
