The Buried Dream

 The Buried Dream
By: Adrielle R. Bollin

Dreams come true
From time to time
Cause hearts to burst
With joy sublime

Some will fade
With time and age
Others stay vivid
A never ending parade

Dreams have died
To give new birth
Replaced with logic
And buried in dirt

I buried you once 
And a thousand times more
Yet still you come back
By some unknown force

Like a restless ghost
You haunt my thoughts
Refusing to rest
Or to be forgot

Caressing my heart 
Like a long lost flame
Stalking my memories
You call out my name

But I cannot have you
The cost is too steep
How can I abandon
The blessings I keep

You're like a prized diamond
Engulfed in shards of glass
Beautiful to look upon
But like a snake in the grass

I've chased you before
Always to no good end
I will not go back
For my heart it still mends

And though you might always
Be the thorn in my side
You will not defeat me
Though you certainly tried
