a fool's dream

every time i think i'm a fool, 
the ghosts and demons grow,
threatening to take over.
but the moment I hear your whisper,
they shrink down into mere shadows.
in your presence,  
i'm able to muster up strength.
i can straighten my shoulders, 
and smile.
you said you'd be my light,
so i'll settle my gaze on your shine.
maybe i'll finally believe you,  
when you promise to always stay with me. 
or maybe i'm still on the floor, 
hoping for something that will never happen.
a fool's dream.

    The higher you are, the longer your fall. Oh well. I really like the structure of this piece, well done!
