Even In Dreams

Slowly lost in a haze of incense and gin

Letting time kill me and not fighting back

I’ve counted the hours since our lips last met

Saying I miss you pales to how my heart yearns to be close

To you

Only you

One more night

and then several more


The days pass to slowly while I move forward

Wanting you

Your voice calls to me from dreams I have yet to venture

Your eyes eating away at the layers of my soul

From the photo at my bedside

I can still smell you on my pillows and sheets

One more night

and then several more

I’ll hold you close

As if we were never apart

Even in dreams…
