“I hope she’ll be a fool—that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” ~ Daisy Buchanan - The Great Gatsby

I am listening for your footsteps
On the stones along the path,
I am listening for the echo
Of your cheerful ready laugh.
I am listening for the whisper of endearments
I am listening for the sigh
That used to follow every kiss.
I am listening for the heartbeat
That once throbbed against my chest,
And deep within my pillow
My hungry ears are pressed
To still the sound of emptiness
That now is in my heart.
I sleep and visit dreamland
Beyond some distant star.

“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?” -John Lennon

God, that was so sad. Reminded me of a lot...

The imagery is beautiful, though.
