You said wishes were glass castles
stationed high up in the sky.

You scribbled dreams of fairies, though;
never failed to make great mountains from
the mundane hills rolling through your mind—
I don’t blame you.

You promised time would see me through;
said I’d find a way to do everything I
never thought the world's clock hands
would shift to permit.

You used your time here wisely, though;
counting minutes like millenniums and
filling the spaces between seconds with
laughter and blue eyeshadow.

You were a rarity, weren’t you?
A dreamer without a cause—

I don’t blame you.
