If only you looked again

If only you had looked again, if only you looked more closely, you would have found inside me a garden carpeted with budding flowers, saplings and streams. There was a time when my dreams had wings, it breaks my heart that not much is left of that once luscious garden, it saddens me that my dreams are now either crippled or crawling, I wake up some nights feverish, drenched in sweat and crying “I want you to change the past”. I remember your condescending belittling laughter, I wonder why the past had not lived in you as it did in me.
