As The Body Dreams – National Poetry Month 2016 – Day20

BodyI live in the body of an unfullfilled dream
a dream someone saw but failed
to take action on

the wings were there but
sleep was not enough for them to grow
fully and fly free

I saw someone in the body of a fulfilled dream
But there was nothing much in it
after all dreams are lost when achieved

then on I never cared for dreams
I let the body reside anywhere
my dream now has nothing to do with my body
