Day Nineteen.

19 Apr

The Choose Haiku

What a crazy dream.
You were attacked by large bees.
I chose not to help.

Then out of nowhere:
Trails and trails of fire ants!
I chose not to help.

Does it seem so cruel?
Watching you yell, twist, and fight?
And still not helping?

Don’t call me vengeful.
I am not accountable
for choices in dreams.

Sound familiar, love?
Not being accountable?
Remember your choice?

We were awake then.
No bees or ants to speak of.
Just you, me, and her.

I yelled and I fought,
I twisted and I turned,
Hoping you’d choose me.

“She is what I want;
don’t hold me accountable.”
I wasn’t your choice.

Thank you, then, for real
life, which helped me to now see:
I’ll choose from now on.

Yet back in this dream,
the bees and ants were quite mean–
and then the wasps came.
