to a lover (that was meant)

i embraced this
opportunity to disclose
something i have been
dreaming. sleeping expressions
with my eyes open
while he spoke. i thought
back to someone
i could have been. and he
never promised a thing.
cold rain outside
with a sunset in my chest,
i said goodbye before
he ever became aware.
