I Dream

Tossing and turning in my bed

My headache rages

Fueled by loneliness and pain

Anguish bubbles

Running down my cheeks

Staining the pillow beneath me

Words whisper in my mind

Yours and mine

The sheets cold where you should be

Only darkness

Your light hidden from me


Pulls me under

Wrestling me to sleep

Then I dream

I dream

A nightmare

A fantasy

This is where you’re real to me

Breath on my skin

Your body pressed close to mine

I’m breathing

But it’s not real

Awakened again in my misery


Cold reality returns to me

My nightmare

My fantasy

Praying to a God not listening

Tossing and turning in my lunacy
