Poem: Once

(For National Poetry Month I am writing a stream-of-conscious poem per day. Each poem is  a spontaneous poem single edit – could get messy!  Here is Poem #18.)

There was a time and place
where anything was true.
Just believe it once and
there was no going back.

Dreams live on without you
twisting and turning; while
you are looking away –
they become something else.

They will haunt nighttime
screaming to be set free.
Didn’t your mother say:
Careful what you wish for…

Shall we have a conversation?
