Perfect Dream

In pursuit of the perfect dream
I lost a lot along the way…
First to go was my mind
As troubles weighed me down
I felt as if I’d drown
Next was my heart
When I misjudged him then
I lost what could have been
Finally I have a body
That now rejects what I want
Memories of painless days only taunt
In pursuit of the perfect dream
I lost a lot of me…
