Reality

I had a dream about you last night.
I recognized the innocence in your eyes.
You smiled.
A lifetime of memories flooded my mind.
We embraced.
For a moment I recognized an old friend.
I saw it coming,
but I remained silent.
You blurred the lines
thinking you could play both sides;
oblivious to the predator
lurking in the shadows nearby.
Like a moth drawn to its own death
you flew to the light.
I watched on in horror as you greeted the stranger.
He smiled.
Promises were whispered softly into your ear.
You embraced him,
confusing the enemy for a friend.
Unaware of the situation,
you thought you could let the foreigner
seduce you slowly in,
but the darkness swallowed you whole;
leaving only traces
of who you once were.
