Dream Land - Poem by Jennifer Morton

In every dream there you are
Never near always far
Kept from me and my falling tears
My rusted bindings seem to tighten in victory
Your kept away from me in my own dream
Your voice calls out and echoes in this world
It speaks my name and beckons me
But I'm to be burned at dusk
So the beckoning must stop
But never does it
Instead it grows louder and louder
Until it seems as if you are next to me
I open my eyes in this Dream Land
Only to find your lips inches from mine
You close in the space
And oh so gently brush them against mine
My bindings fall away in defeat
And I'm released
I go to walk away
But you grab my hand
And say don't leave not yet
Dance with me
I bring my gaze from your eyes to our intertwined hands
And walk closer
A smile breaks open
And as you place your hand on my waist
I awaken
To my broken reality
And the Dream Land perishes
