A Different Dream


One-night stand to a happily ever after,
That’s never how I pictured my fairy tale.
But you were there, I was there,
Two brokenhearted souls.

Meaningless sex to deepest connection,
Somehow a beautiful bond was formed.
We knew it had to end,
But we cherished what we had.

But we dreamt the same dreams,
We had one pursuit,
We tied our future together,
Always and forever, we vowed.

Deeper in love we fell,
Day and night, we toiled,
With just one motive in our minds,
We’ll make our dream come true.

Career and love, perfectly balanced,
We were the perfect two.
Nothing could tear us apart,
We were bound by our hearts.

But then I fell in love once again,
Not with another being, I swear!
I just found a different passion
A different dream, I dreamt.

Now, how do I tell you,
There’s something else I want to do?
Will you take the dream forward?
That was yours before ours.

Don’t doubt a second, dear,
I love you from my deepest core.
I just dream a different dream,
But, right next to you, I stand.

I have this daunting a fear,
Will I be losing you?
I just want a different career,
 Not a new love affair.

What happens now if I tell you?
Will you support me or let me go?
Can’t we have different careers,
And yet stick together forever?

  3. The thought and the words were just pairing each other so beautifully. Can I ask something? How long did it take to get to such a standard of writing and how long does it usually take to write such awesome pieces. I know different poems might take different span of time for their completion, but on an average still? You know just curious.
