Poem by Linda Ori

You wander through my dreams -
A ghost of a thought drifting in and out
Coloring my sleep with sunshine and shadow,
You fill my unconscious mind -
Every waking hour, every word I speak,
Every step I take is guided by your hand;
You're never far from me -
A memory creeps in and silently slips away
Taking my spirit along to a place in my dreams;
Why do you torture me?
My thoughts run circles around your face -
It's drowning me..........Get out of my mind!

    Yes, I like this poem. The image of your sleep being colored is particularly strong and it has that watery sub-conscious feel through the repetition and questioning. Very strong.
