Dreaming Only In

by Christopher Shin

Kiss you and the
world explodes
with stars and sparks.

Oh how the fantasy
becomes you when
you stare into
my eyes.

I look away with
fear that you
see me for who I

And not the fake
stories I want
you to admire me

My mind begins
to swim as the
wine screams
for hope that
fairy tales can
be true somehow.

Only now do I realize
that I struggle with
pricked needles and
forgotten hopes that
have no redemption.

I am stuck with
dreams and you are
part of it all.
