dreams were cheap
when we were young

we could crumple them up
like miswritten love notes
and throw them out
to start again

lazily plucking new ones
from the rose-colored
fields of our insouciance

but now the days shorten
roads once open are walled shut
our feet turn in aimless circles

dreams become dear
as one by one
they die beneath
reality’s heavy boots

and none rise up to
replace them
I haven't much felt like writing for a while, so I thought I'd try to write my way out of it. This one's a bit rough yet.

I love the sentiment of this. It's too true, and it applies I think to the metaphorical aging of a relationship as well as an individual's biological lifespan. A bittersweet reminder of how little we value the good things we have when we have them. Great piece.

I haven't seen you much lately. How are you?

You're very welcome.

I'm good. Work is keeping me busy, which is unfortunate, but also fortunate given the recession and all that.
