New dreams


She said to him:
Go and make
your dreams come true.

She wiped her eyes
and held her ground.
But you must
do so without me.

She sighed and turned away.
I must dream
new dreams to chase,
for in all the dreams I had
once upon a time,
you were by my side.
I am learning to live
without you; to dream
without you; to love
without you.

She whispered to herself,
That is the lesson
I learnt, hard and well,
When he closed the door
between us.

She took a deep breath.
He closed the door.
I simply locked it.
