Hope

i looked for you on the cold downtown sidewalks, believed you might appear like some mirage tangled in the constellation of city lights.

Knowing that I would not find you my heart began to play tricks on my mind. I tried to find your eyes in all the window reflections lining the deserted city roads- heavy breath frozen before me breaking the black night. Your image imprinted in my mind as though i had seen you three thousand times before- as if this mirage were truly concrete- as if these silly kind of dreams could ever really come true.

My mind knows the truth, though- while swayed by my deceptive heart still… it knows.
Either way i will continue to believe in such dreams.
