Dreams (A poem about Mystery)

When I woke up today,
My dream, I did replay
And once again, you were the star
I never thought it would go this far

I know I might never be able to give you
What you need, what you want and I thought I was through
But you still haunt my dreams every single night
And your face once sweet now gives me fright

For you appear to me when I close my eyes
So clear and vivid, without disguise
And I always see how we aren't meant to be
For you are so very different from me

I would love for you to find happiness
But I doubt if for you, that joy I can harness
You don't even seem half as romantic as I am
I start to wonder if this is all a sham

I don't know if you could ever appreciate
The poems I've penned about your heavenly state
Would you toss them casually to the side?
Or their very existence deride?

Your thoughts seem galaxies away from mine
And I know things should be just fine
But in my mind, you are still enshrined
And my old thoughts, I want to find

So I do have this request for you
And it's something I hope you do
Get the hell out of my dreams please
And set my weary mind at ease

Stop haunting my every night
With dreams of you I cannot fight
For I lose so much rest with you on my mind
You've come inside and robbed me blind

So please pack your bags and go
Leave my heart and mind and soul
For I doubt you'll ever give me a chance
For you spare me not a single glance

I wish you all the best
And I will continue to jest
Just give me back my mind's keys
And leave my battered heart at ease.

For Aya Chang (CLEARLY NOT a poem about Mystery. It's about Aya Chang!)

First read by Aya Chang

You're not the moon, you are the earth
Destined for love and hope since birth
Perhaps you never noticed this
But the angels gave you their sweetest kiss

For before you fell from the skies,
I know you caught the angel's eyes
And I know they saw the shining soul
That daily onto the world, you behold

And even here, on this simple world,
You glow unlike any other girl
Do you not get the clue?
Everything you need is inside of you

You've got more love in your golden heart
Than all the world could ever impart
You bring the sun to my days
You know not the many ways

When the world comes and crashes on my soul,
I have you to see and hug and hold
When I feel my love for others has been rejected,
I look at you and see my love reflected

I look at you and see your eyes
As time comes, passes and flies
I am at home, safe and sound
I felt lost and in you, I was found

When I think that hell has come to earth to destroy me,
And you come and hug me so tightly
Every chain the world cast on my body
Is broken as you set me free

And I fall into this state of calm
As to my scorched spirit, you are the balm
And with your hands on me, I feel
That love exists and is real

For at times, I do stop believing
That love is worth living and breathing
And you remind me that love is worth everything
And for it, I risk every single sting

For with your presence, you take me higher
I feel like I could set the rain on fire
For with you close, there is nothing that I fear
For you bring me love and warmth and cheer

Another thing you do to me
Is help me solve my mystery
For to my broken heart, you are the glue
You pick me up when I am blue

I swore that before our days would end
I'd write a poem for you, meant
For love is most easily expressed in words
That I let loose like a flock of birds

I would like you to remember
That in my heart, you've lit an ember
A spark to a flame that will never go out
And will burn for you without a doubt.
