The following free-form poem was written in 1996 when I was studying engineering at university.
Heart in Turmoil
Love is funny. You sit around waiting for a dream. Yet, there's another right there.
But it's the dream you want, even though you know it won't last. You keep asking yourself, "How long must I wait?" Yet, there's another right there.
The dream you've known for years. You know his thoughts, his actions, his dreams and fantasies. You know him so intimately that you even know what he is thinking before he does. But he's only a dream, and there's another right there.
