Was It A Dream ?

I saw this
as if in real time
Everything I knew and loved
lost
in real time

Family, friends,
skills struggled for over a lifetime
A woman whom I love.
Lost.

What fool ignores Cassandra?
Priam, how could you?
I saw your mistake and yet
I made the same one.

Yet it wasn’t exactly as I saw.
Your destiny, Priam, may not be mine.

My heart,
you didn’t leave.
My love
you touched my shoulder, saying
“Stand, walk with me. I’m here. All isn’t lost.”

What fool ignores Cassandra?
Me.
What fool ignores you?
Not I. Not ever.
This was no dream.
More a warning.
