how to kill a dream

Keep your dreams somewhere safe,
Hidden lock and key,
Away from possibilities and accountabilities.

Sweep them under couches and beds,
Shoved behind lost shoes,
To be covered in dust.

Put them in corners,
Faced away from the moving world.
The light of their face pushed against the wall.

Bury them deep inside you.
Forever between your heart and tongue,
Stuck in your throat.

Beneath the fear.
Beneath the unknown.
Alone and unheard.
