I WAS reciting a poem. It was an impromptu. Then I told myself that I should write this down because it seems beautiful. So I did. I wrote the poem.
Upon writing it, I told again myself that I should remember this poem. I should memorize this one; because I knew that I was dreaming. Yes, I’m in my dream. I really should remember this. Please don’t forget this one. This is such a lovely poem, I told myself. Please..
I opened my eyes.
I remember reciting it. And I even wrote it down.. It was a bit long. A three or four stanza, four-liner; I clearly remember these things..
I can’t remember the poem! I knew I’ve memorized it. I knew I told myself in my dream that I should remember that certain poem. And here I am –just remembering what I told myself to do.
It was for someone.. Shit. I just remember bits. Not even half of it.
I can never retrieved that poem.
I s i g h e d..
It will be lost forever in that dream. This is the bits I’ve managed to bring with me in this soberland;
When you look and didn’t see
When you listen and couldn’t hear
Don’t you worry my dear
Just say the words
And I’ll believe you
Because it came out of you
I couldn’t even remember what came first and next and last.. -__-
