My Dreams

My Dreams by Valerie Parente

In Touch pagesI keep on wishing
someone will listen
as I try to make sense
of my mental illness
so I put it in print
then decided to distance
spent time with my best friend
then she went to heaven
but the world keeps spinning
so I keep on living
trying to make a difference
while I feel her within
I hope my story transcends.

One thought on “My Dreams

  1. Evan says:

    I’m listening
    as I often
    feel the same way.
    The mind is like
    a mixed up bowl of spaghetti.
    We need someone to
    be a fork
    and gently twirl our thoughts
    into something that makes sense.
