I fell in love,
inside of a dream.
And woke up,
with a broken heart.

But it wasn't my heart,
that was broken.

It was his,
and I'll never see him again.

That long haired, pale skin,
blue eyed boy, will forever remain,
a figment of my imagination.

So close, yet so far away.
And I will never be able to apologize,
for my mistake.
D: True story. I felt so empty after the dream, and even though he was from my imagination, I hope i'll get to meet him in real life one day, his name was Marilyn, and I watched him leave, and he never came back, and I felt like a total bitch! Ugh, and what sucks is none of it was real, so I can't say i'm sorry! 
Can you guys relate?

This is perfect - it really hit me - my dream is a guy I only know online, and he won't meet me - we both know it has to be this way.

I had a similar dream, but a shaggy, red head. It's so depressing what a dream can do to a person. I hope this person is real. I would love to meet him.

OMG... I can sympathize, this is totally beautiful in all of it's bittersweet irony of how fate can be so cruel in playing games with someone's heart

I felt related as hell,my dear boy (the one of my icon pic.) has always been so kind with me even though I broke his heart not beacuse of cheating,I have never done it before but because I Was denied in dating anyone,but we made a promise ~~~ I wouldn't mind for an eternal wait <3
It is amazing how dreams can be so powerful,People say that They are meant to release our deepest desires and deepest fears as Well,perhaps you get the chance to meet him in real life! Beautiful poem by the way <3 c:

Very well written piece, short and to the point. It holds a lot of emotion in it as well. Very inspiring for my own work. Dreams are powerful, maybe its God's way of telling you to look out. Hope you find him one day.

it's said that the people we see in are dreams are people we have seen before in real life, at some point. (some people even consider past lives) and i've had dreams like that it's heart wrenching sometimes. and this is extremely lovely :)

I do believe in past lives, and perhaps, he was replaying an old story. Thanks for your comment :D

I do too, and perhaps that's what it was, a memory from a past life you shared, also if you believe in past lives you should read the book Brida by Paulo Coelho it's mind blowing :)

This is so True!
I had a few of these lucid dreams & one time I felt like I was really there & he was there with me, I forgot I was asleep the whole time, that was until my mother woke me up for school, I was really sad that morning but I never forgot about the dream or him.
He came back a few times after that dream, but then he disappeared, I can only hope I can dream about him again & hope that I can meet him in person someday,
let us both hope our wishes will come true someday.

Lucid dreaming is pretty neat, I've done it many times before, but this one wasn't entirely lucid. Thanks for the small story, hopefully we both meet "the one" in person!

I've actually had a couple of those dreams. They were strange, but nice in a way. 
Maybe your dream was some sort of premonition?

Similar dream, different outcome. Sitting in a coffee shop with sunlight shining through, I was having the best conversation of my life, she smiled, and I laughed. She was about to say something, then I woke up. As vague as that was, I was happy for the entire day, maybe because I took it as a sign that if I keep looking, my dreams will become reality.

People come and go, emotions don't. So I would take it as a foreshadowing, or I would :shrug: or :dunno:
