dream……by Diane Tegarden
dream of love…..
one? oneness?
a possibility…..closer…
a reality? no, a dream.

beautiful dream, wispy and lifelike
i held you in my arms, and believed.
you believed too,
for so long, so short a time.

then…i began to awaken,
fighting back to the dream,
but no,
i am awake now.

i still hold you in my arms
but ‘we’ are changed
this reality, this harsh knowing,
it is pain to know. it is pain.

i long for sleep, deep and endless.
celestial night,
fill my empty chamber,
let me…..


(from my upcoming poetry book “Italian Bees Make Honey Pizza”)
