My first on-line poem

I have lived, for two days, lying down in the rain.
I have dreamed that the seas merged, filling time.
Taken a world below you, the thief of the same
Being ready, now that I am, feeling lame.

I have lived, for two moments, the start and the end.
I have dreamed in my life of many things.
Not knowing a way is easy to pretend
Needing and pretending the hardest to defend.

I have lived, for two ways.
I have dreamed, and forgotten.
I still fight to know the truth.
I still live for eternal youth.
