i learned to never hold on to my dreams

November 26, 2020

FREE WRITING

16
i would dream of happy things
all smiles and laughs,
but when i wake up…

i want to scream
wail to the symphony of
my forever lost dreams

but i just sigh
shake away my anguish
and plaster on today’s smile 
hey all! another piece so soon?!? crazy, i know. i’d like to say that my writers block has gone away, but i don’t want to speak too soon ;)

thank you for reading, you beautiful person!

    Aw wow, I love this! It is so pretty but at the same time "and plaster on today’s smile " feels too real! :)

    re: alright, will do!! i just started writing, it probably won’t take me too long because i’ve already outlined the entire piece in my mind....

    stunning!!! i love the way you’ve almost framed dreams as nightmares, but not really? sorry, i’m bad at this whole ‘explaining’ thing.
    slightly off topic, but would you mind if i made a almost ‘partner’ piece to this? kind of like the opposite? again, my words are failing me.... it’s alright if you’d rather i don’t, btw :) lovely piece

    i can imagine a backstory to this piece, "i never learned to make my dreams come true" (dreams, not nightmares). this is a captivating piece, the title caught me right away.
