Differences

The differences between you and me
I’ve seen the sky turn from blue to grey
I’ve watched a ship sail from west to east
You haven’t

The differences between you and me
I’ve heard the voices of the choir carol
I’ve listened to the speeches of great men
You haven’t

The differences between you and me
I’ve tasted the bitterness of cocoa
I’ve savoured the sweetness of peaches
You haven’t

And yet
You tell me
You’ve seen the colours of the wind
You’ve heard the layman’s cry for change
You’ve tasted victory despite defeat

Indeed
Most of all
The difference between you and me
You love me
But I don’t love me

Dreams

Covered in glitter and gold
You stepped out, into his arms
Prince Charming didn’t really look all too charming
Not like you had much makeup on either

It didn’t really matter
The beach walks were pretty long
The songs sung were pretty sweet
The gazes you held between yourselves lasted forever

But alas, forever is short
In the realm of dreams and wonders
Perhaps, Prince Charming was one of many
Perhaps, you’ll find the next person charming too.
