Hopes and Dreams


Do my hopes smother your dreams

to wake up and hear my screams

I’ve been waiting for the good in

your noose

But you’re still swinging there

in spite of its torture and truth


Do my hopes shatter your eyes

the tears that break in stride

I never mentioned the distance

I’d go

For the mortar and to hear it’s blow


Do my hopes sink in your world

to face down and drown this little girl

I have now until forever for you

to wait for the sun and strangle

its moon
