Pale echo of reality


Last night I dreamt

A most delicious dream

Again of you and I.


It was deadly bittersweet,

belladonna on my tongue

even as I slumbered, I knew it as untruth

And I dissolved into tears.


You were lovely, kind,

and made my heart ache for

your warm touch, you made me smile

and dismissed all other girls.


The devastation I felt when I awoke,

And found it to be a pale echo of reality-

I cannot express into words.
