Dreamt of a stage and a song lifting from my lungs. It was another possibility that my life could have been, if I had only gone in another direction. So many recognizable faces were in the audience, but it was your eyes that I could not break from.
As the curtains closed, red velvet around me it turned into your embrace and I woke up feeling a melancholy kind of fulfillment. No, my life did not go in every direction I wanted it to, but I'm still here, and that's something to be proud of.
