dreamer and the dream

you’re a figment
of my imagination

you’re not real

just something seen
from the corner of my eye

something

happening in the
universe next door

that’s what I tell myself

each and every day

but

when I look away
there you are

a rain drop glittering in the sky
becomes the blue of your eye

the hint of summer in the air
feels like your soft embrace

the warmth of the sun
turns into a kiss
gentle on my lips

but

none of it is real

I am here
and you,
you don’t exist

still

you reel me in
on a silver thread

you wrap me oh-so tight
in shiny satin ribbons

and never let me go

yet

there’s no way we’ll ever meet
anywhere

but

right here
in these lines.

Sometimes dreams can sustain us and sometimes they just confuse us making it hard to see what’s real and what isn’t, especially if the dream is what we want and real life isn’t. Isn’t that what literature is all about? Sharing someone else’s dreams?
