the space in between

another dream falls short
I wonder, has life really taught, 
me anything, any single thing
                                                     to feel the sting
of disappointment, 
                                   time and time again
to wonder
                                                       when, just when just when
          you'll ever make it through
whether you'll find the courage
to renew
all intentions
to find new meaning
free from pretension

another dream falls short
this time, a dream I fought
so hard to make a reality
the space between
fiction and actuality
is gaping, 
the space-
it's making
me wonder why
I ever bothered 

another dream falls short 
no matter
I always sought

to be free
                  from dreams

-peace, maybe it lies 
in the space in between-
