i sat
on a boat
in the middle of a lake
my best friend right next to me
surrounded by people
and feeling so
loved
we watched the fireworks
and smiled

today

i sit
on a boat
in the middle of a lake
nobody is next to me
surrounded by people
and feeling so
alone
i watch the fireworks
and cry
a lot can change in a year

some days i dread to dream
because it is only in my dreams
that i can be with him
that i can do it over
that i am not alone
that i am happy

and then
i wake up
here
and alone
i want to go back

i often dream
of big cities in far away places.
dusty old bookstores
or antique shops.
rushing out into the crowded street
as i catch a glimpse of you.
my heart fluttering
as i say your name
and you turn around.
and finally
i’m back in your arms again.
you’re in my dreams most every night

i will never understand
how all the beautiful words in the world
cannot be about girls

girls who hold my hand and call me baby
girls whose laughs seem like they can change
the world
girls who yell in the faces of policemen
and wave their flags
girls who’s hair grows out and up
reaching towards the sun
girls
with their soft curves
and soft lips
their every action
the epitome of beauty.
hold me, darling

i wish i could go back
only just a few months.
back to the dark backstage
back to the good days.
back to whispers
and silenced laughs
back to when my heart wasn’t smashed
into pieces.

i wish i could go back
only to september.
back to the football games
back to the good days.
back to school songs
and friday nights.
back to when my heart wasn’t shattered
by you.
i don’t want to be alone anymore

there is only one way to see the past.
it is longing to be seen.
gaze into the skies above
your soul shall then be clean

the stars they sing a sad lament
they’ve risen, now they fall.
but the stars. they have a sacrament
that must be heard by all.

we see them not as they are
but as they were so long ago
and those of us who see the stars
this one pure truth we know:

there is a beauty in old things
and innocence in the new.
any man can be a king.
but only one person can be you.
the stars we see are 250 million years old
Madi Dinneen May 24
I am so alone
In this miserable world
I long for release
I don’t have any friends left
