Not Dreaming

November 17, 2010
you are asleep now
far away from me
I know
when you dream
it is not of me
I can't help hoping
just a little bit
that they might be
but I am kidding myself,
you have never cared that much
or at least
you pretended not to

I think that more imagery would've painted a more vivid picture for me. Other than that, good job ! "you have never cared that much/or at least/you pretended not to"(l.13-15) were my favorite and most empathized.

Before I go to sleep I think of a person and hope to dream about them but I never do. Oh well... somedays I wonder if anyone dreams about me.. well I loved your poem =]

I think everyone has felt that way at least once in their life. Teens feel like that most of the time tho...
