keeping dreams to myself

I had trouble explaining to people
you were more than just my flights of fancy
they’d stare at me, stunned look on their faces
or maybe it was a gaze of pity
I told myself I would not waste
any more of my precious time
trying to walk them through my dream
when they stopped believing in theirs
a long time ago
