I was asleep,
But in that dream…
Believed myself to be awake.
So crisp the coolness of the day,
Such vivid – textures… Could not shake
The feel of you, so real still
That it enticed my senses all,
Beguiling chance within. Without
The questions bayed unanswered.
Caught in the chase, the thrill
Of days long disremembered
To resurrect I sipped the offered prize.
How cruel a vision where a loved one dies!
A dream to nightmare rendered.
For there too abandoned soon
My body eddied. Cut away
From your arm’s grasp, it lay tormented
Under a hellish moon.
I cannot tell you why it was not meant to be.
I waiver in the dark…
In leaving you extinguished
Now set me free!
