Waking Dream

drawing, Meredith's poetry

In honor of Valentines Day I have written a love poem and drawn a picture to go with it.  I hope you enjoy it even if it’s not what you might think of.

Waking Dreams

My waking dreams

the bridge between minds interpretation and reality

I saw you last night but you were not there

I kissed you so softly, like butterfly wings 

and then you dissolved into night

into eternity 

an endlessness of soft lips on mine turning into cool air

and then I woke

My memories play tricks on me

True memories and dream memories

They are confused

Were we in love?  The question lingers

that feeling so hard to pin down

I’d catch it in a net but no matter what I do the holes are too big

The webbing just moves through it like air

And you’re not real

You’re a dream that I saw 

Gossamer and dew drops have more substance than you
