Dreams Made of Smoke

Shh
Let all the music
Inside you
Quiet itself so that you can
No longer
Hear the discord of your surroundings
And your own heart,
And then you won’t cry

Do not be afraid,
Even though we are
Not
Together in this place

Someday we
Will
Know why,
But in the meantime
Don’t
Lose your faith in all the things that
Matter
So much to you

In truth I have often
Dreamed
Of those things,
Things that I care about so much,
Until they’ve become so
Warped
In my mind that even my
Daydreams know that they
Aren’t real

And look at me now!

I’ve dreamed
All
My passions
Away
Until I believe in
Nothing
And my dreams,
As shallow as they are,
Are all that I’m willing to risk

Learn from me

Forget about the discord
Outside
And
Ignore the harmony
Within

Let
No one
Hear your song,
Not even yourself,
Until you are
Certain
Of what they mean to you so that no matter
What discord or harmony there is
You will listen
Because you know that
That is the song that the two of you
Share and because of how true it is
It is beautiful.
