Only at Night

You come to me
only at night
for that time
it feels so real

this glass apartment
high in the sky
with wrap around balcony
we walk hand in hand

your kiss
the summer scent of you
I most miss

as we talk
daylight breaks

your fading
screaming at me
to close my eyes
to wait for darkness
you’ll be back

I awake 
in the apartment.

Sometimes those dreams DO feel so real, don't they? And undoubtedly....while they live....they are!

Nice thoughts to give one company.

...lonely hearts always long for company... sentiments shared alone make hearts grow bitter.... smiles...

"your fading
screaming at me"

I love this reversal. The fading image calls out to the dreamer, not the other way around. Much more intense like that.

Wistful and beautiful poem! So sad when we awake though and can only hope there will be more of these dreams.

Brian Miller said...

Sad to wake up alone ~ Some dreams are so real though ~

Robert Bourne said...

there is a tinge of sadness through out..the poem is something I can relate to... sometimes the night isn't long enough...

Björn said...

When dreams and sleep are preferable to reality it's sad.. and loneliness have gone to far

I guess, nostalgia hits the hardest during the night. Beautifully penned. So vivid.

Loredana Donovan said...

Ohh this is a bit haunting ... the image screaming back at you. Such yearning and loneliness in this poem ... beautifully described. And I love glass rooms :)

TALON said...

Oh, those times we've wished for the dreamstate to become the real. I loved this! Lyrical and tender.

There is both yearning and tenderness in your verses. Dreams can often be an escape, but can also be a trap. I sense some of both here.

So sad when we wake up to find dreams are just that.
So sad when we lose somebody...

So deep the melancholy of knowing that you will be alone after some moments of being in someone's company. Beautiful, I truly felt the words. :-)

Oh, he will definitely be back...who wouldn't...who could resist these words of a fantasy so real.
This is SO beautiful.:)
