A Nightmare? - Poem by Cabaline xxx
I awake with a start,
my emotions are mixed,
surprise, tinged with guilt.
I close my eyes so that I can,
claw back the pictures in my head.
My dream is sadly not intact,
bits fall through my grasp like sand.
In this dream, I am distressed,
upset by some event or person.
And when I most need comfort,
there you are, looking at me, as if,
to say~ 'I am your savior.'
You hold me as I sigh and cry.
I can still feel your warmth.
As I sat beside you, you reached out,
and took my hand. So sweetly.
I can still so vividly feel,
your caressing, soothing touch.
The way you gently stroked my hand,
instantly banished any negative feelings.
I looked at you, with trust, in my,
adoring eyes. I received a message,
of pure love, back from you, my dear.
Then we chatted, then sat in silence,
both of us perfectly happy.
I open my eyes once again,
but this time I find myself smiling.
Then my smile vanishes as I realise,
that it is but a dream, a desperate hope,
and that sadly, my love, it is not real.
