For No One but Yourself

I had wishes and dreams
about you and me
for all eternity.
But you had your own
for yourself and yourself.
And no one but yourself.

It’s not my obligation
to close my eyes
and meet you in your dreamland.
Even if I love you.
Even if I want you.

I wasn’t part of your dreams.
Nor do I think I’ll ever be.
It hurts,
it stings.
My heart bleeds
like it shouldn’t bleed.

Thank you
for the dreams you’ve shattered.
And the ones
you’ve inspired me to see.
