Once upon a time I dreamed of love
The kind that comes from the heart
Not love that stems from the mind
More wholesome than lust and infatuation
I thought I would find that love one day
Until reality slapped me in the face.
Once upon a time I dreamed of friendship
The kind you read about in books
Where they stand beside you valiantly
Despite others thoughts or opinions
That friendship could create a family
But then I realized no one really cared.
Once upon a time I dreamed of hope
The kind that makes tomorrow better
And I would wake and see the light again
But now I stand alone in the shadows
Looking down the deepest precipice
And The darkness smothers me.
Since I now know that I am alone I no longer dream.
