Chicago Dreams

Poem by: TatteredWings

Summary

When the life you built crumbles under your hands, your heart cries out with a burning wish, then it's time to go back to what you know.

It beginns a cold morning Waking in the bed alone Rather not step out Pass by without a smile Having coffee silently Nothing left to say Old question reappears

Basketball and riverbands Beautyful Chicago Dreams Of brighter days outside When have they left for Worn down carpet halls Go away to live for today Bleed out heart crying for Beautyful Chicago dreams

And in those rainy days Chills in a quiet room Raging words in spite Fighting for bare rights Wounds loveless ripped Not to heal in moons Old question reappears

Superbowl and empty streets Beautyful Chicago Dreams Of cosy days inside Now have they left for Worn down paper walls Stay in to hide for today Cried dry heart out bleeding for Beautyful Chicago dreams

And in those quiet evenings Sitting at a lone bedsite Holding a kids hand Until sleep comes by Same sad plastic smile Worn any day to day Old question reappears

TV stars and rioting streets Beautyful Chicago Dreams Of quiet nights inside Now have they left for Worn down sofa cushions Go nowhere to stew for today Tired heart now dreaming for Beautyful Chicago dreams

And in those lone nights Loveless days gone by Bed as cold as stone Wait until morning hours For her soul in other arms Blood like lava streams Old question reappears

Nightclubs and Bourbon spirits Beautyful Chicago Dreams Of joyous nights outside Used to be left for Worn down linnon sheets Go anywhere to stay out tonight Hungry heart out longing for Beautyful Chicago dreams

It ends in awful dreams Waking in unholy hours Feeling bathed in ice Heart bare to the bone Lay alone and wonder What it is I'm missing Old question reappears

Airplanes and bustling crowds Beautyful Chicago Dreams Of happy days ahead Worn down metal trolleys Now have gone to fly Far away to leave for good Joyful heart gone living for Beautyful Chicago dreams

This is here and now Now gotta let me go Learn to live without  My life needs change By sunrise I'll be gone To places I belong Old question resolved

Factories and Metro rides Beautyful Chicago Dreams Of present day realities Worn out post cards Have turned to memories Gone past forever more Loving heart now living in Beautyful Chicago dreams
