I’m Beyond You (dld Writing Challenge, un-numbered)

judgement day
rehearsal
is usually a bad sign
especially when the streets are not
lined
with spectators who throw tomatoes
at the story behind woe is me
so i’m calling out to those who hide 
within their fear, i meant nothing
of the names i called you,
poor on my part
to say you’ll never understand,
 why
i have to move on,
despite my attempts at fitting in
your dreams deferred so long ago
by greed, but
i’ve a need
to move outside your ideas
of utopia,
it’s just too far away,
and like your fears,
not real.
