Poem - That Dream

There are people who visit us only in our dreams. Sometimes the encounters are pleasant, fond reunions in a sleeping realm. Other times the encounters are terse and unwelcomed, even though dreams are the only place the people may be met.

That Dream
Poem for Day 017 - 20141010

I had that dream again,
you know the one.
You appear from beyond,
a ghost made most plain.
I miss you so much,
enough for my heart to ache.
You're not there while I wake,
instead you visit in my sleep.

The dream is infrequent,
for this I am most glad.
I feel raving mad.
This is my deep secret.
Why only in my dreams?
My heart feels broken.
My tears are emotion streaming.
Your heart is emotion frozen.

Cold
Distant
Dismissing
Busy
Remote
Aloof
Frosty
Dead

I am so glad to see you.
Please don't visit me again.
I wish no dream preview
of a future so constrained.
Please visit me again,
in my slumber resting place.
Just please, next time,
Say that you love me once again.
