Springtime Beauty

20140309-143035.jpg
Last night
you came to me
bearing gifts.

Exquisite whispers
blossoming
from your mouth
like a bouquet of flowers,
promises
of springtime beauty.

Almost inaudibly,
you told me you wanted me.
You told me you loved me.
You told me we can be together.

How strange.
I never had a dream
like that before.

Dream Annex Within the House of My Heart

Somehow you became annexed

within the house of my heart.

 

I spent one evening with you

that ended with us lying in bed,

entwined in each other’s warm arms.

 

That night I soared

on wings of sleep

through a rambling series of dreams

in which you made me laugh,

entertained me with anecdotes

and did not leave me.

 

I woke the next morning

to find you had moved in

to my inner world.

 

Now you are dwelling within me

like a part of myself

and I do not know

if I am dreaming you

or you are dreaming me.
