At Dream's End

At dream’s end 
we let the water flow

At dream’s end
loosening our grip
hold the best bits
release the scenes that never came

I imagined endless parties
some intangible heart that I could puncture
I imagined so much more
turns out it’s just another place 
moving at a heightened pace

Now I sit quietly
by the chequered flag
grateful to have run
chest heaving
throat burning for the next adventure

At dream’s end
there are no tears
just gratitude we tried
just thanks we dared to try

This dream was just a theory
I had to prove or disprove
This is not the end
this was not the whole dream anyway

This is just the join
this is just a link between
the old dream 
and the new dream

Eyes blinking awake
then batting back to sleep
This is not the end
this is just a join

Between the old dream
and the new…
