Last Night - But A Dream - Poem by Ben Gieske

You left me last night
Your car’s hum holding me tight
Your footsteps whispering still

Like a mouse in the night
Your words invaded my sleep
And my heart began to beat
Like a thunder cloud prowling the sky.

Murmurings of lake waters
the cliff’s edge and such intrigue
cascading into a waterfall


“Life is not a dream, but it may come to be a dream.”
- Novalis

    Love the imagery in this one, esp. stanza 3, so much said in so few words. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply
