we are nothing but dreams

 
 
 
dusk spreads its wings for the weeping
and my fingers follow slow, quivering
gathering last of dew from leaves
 
there under the Eucalyptus tree
i see you waiting, golden sliver
in your eyes and metaphors  
dripping from your tongue
i drink every word drunk  
in yesterday's wine
listening to songs of  
your heartbeat before dawn
 
the tormented ocean whines  
at our feet  
recedes  
greeting with salty kiss
and  
i fail to answer your questions
my gaze resting on fallen stars
knowing soon you'd vanish
with blood orange moon
my nakedness blooming
beneath your shirt
scent of promises  
lingering from frayed threads
 
the aching throb of
languorous lover pulsates in
nocturnal sky
refolding all that's left behind
 
remembering:
remembrance is not redemption
recognition is not acknowledgment
conquest is not happiness  
and
a smile on horizontal sheets
are always lost on innocence
when the broken is never healed
 
in dreams  
we are nothing more than dreams
words are never enough
nothing  
is
just as this poem
is
