They Keep Coming Back




They Keep Coming Back


Some dreams refuse to die
They may go out of sight
Cloak themselves in an outfit of 
Defeated and dejected lover
Desiring to be known as unknown 
Sometimes even convincing the beloved
Of withdrawing forever from chasing her
Assuring the flowers and the bees
The rains and the clouds
Of never coming back to mingle with them
Till like embers not taken care of properly
They get ignited all over again--

In these perplexing times
You can understand them better 
If you recall your worst nightmares
