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 †
