Unraveling Dreams

You painted my face
In shining beams
I dressed you in silks
of schemes and dreams,

(And not just any kind of dreams,
Forever, ever, always, dreams).

Unraveling now
In shades upon shades
Tendrils have ripped
The garden gates,
Facades have crumbled
The rain’s washed clean
You stand there, naked
(In a pile of dreams).

You disappear into the mist
A glance behind,
A silken kiss,
The single thread
Left in my grasp
Leaves shadows of
A wily Asp.

(It seems I’ve dreamed
This dream before
Must I dream it o’r?
And o’r and o’r?)
