I wrote this about nine years ago about a new relationship that was on the edge of ending badly. I called it, I Killed A Dream.

Please forgive the lack of punctuation, I was a lazy typist back then.

i killed a dream
a shapless need from inside of me
i covered its mouth and snuffed it out
after using it to guide my path
and after wishing for it to pass
i picked it out
and murderd it
it's dim light went out without a shout
it's breath no longer tormenting my mind's inner ear
where it spoke to me in dreams of it's unending possiblities
when i could stand it no longer
when the smiles of what could be turned to the frowns of what could have been
i ripped it from my heart
and flung it from my soul
i stamped it into the earth
and made it bleed the way my happieness did
when it taunted me at night
and i hardly miss it
this dream of mine
for a thousand more replace it
everytime i close my eyes
