I don't want to dream of you anymore (Love in the time of Pollution)  sjraerae  22 Jan 19 3:48PM Thread Closed

I don’t want to dream of you anymore

  ‘I open my eyes and the world drops dead
I think I made you up inside my head’
we never even met

You’re faceless in my dreams
           The focus
but faceless

I used to watch the planets move in the sky and think of you
I think bittersweet paved the road to hell
The penultimate words written at the bottom of the sea
I think I carry them with me

Celestial bodies as confirmation bias
Why does it feel like my soul is still captive?
I’m haunted by what I thought you were
I wonder what you’re made of

A civil service for a crazy girl, the final message to draw a line in the sand while I was drowning

‘We’re getting married soon’

Damn that fucked me up

You were the one, that’s what I told myself
I don’t even know myself

           I’m a stupid girl
Romanticism ruins love
I knew that and put the glasses on still

I don’t want to dream of you anymore
  I don’t want to remember the delusional feeling of the inevitability of us
   I don’t want to believe you could have been my balance

Ghost boy
I think I loved you in a past life
Did you promise then to break my heart in this one?

The last drops of idealism disguised as tears
I feel spent and all my bets were on you

I stayed at the Ace Hotel in Tokyo
I thought of you in every place I’d go
    
     Love in the time of Pollution

I thought of you in apartment 1503
the shower overlooked the Beijing city skyline
there I saw you marked in constellations


I don’t want to dream of you anymore

that was incredible.. a smart person would not dream of responding to it, without appearing like an idiot
