Was BluSparrow on Ficlets

Do you recognize me?

Yes, I changed my hair.

Yes, these clothes are different.

My confidence is showing,

I wear no mask these days.

I had a dream

Of a familiar face.

An acquaintance? A friend?

I searched for what I knew.

The face gave nothing away.

The friend said nothing.


At first, I pleaded,

Then I shouted.

I tried to reach out,

I couldn’t move.


The closer I looked

The more that face faded away.

Or maybe, I faded away,

Or maybe,

that person

was me.

Sounds like a message was trying to be sent but not received.

I was trying to portray that kind of message

Very nice. Melancholy, bittersweet, these are things I crave in poetry. Also I'm a sucker for dreams that resonate with me and this one does.
