Dreams Come True


A living death.

In my chest and

In my head.


I lay in wake.

Sifting through my dreams

Until you arrive.


I don't know you.

We have yet to meet.

But every night,

You torture my sweet sleep.

Torture, because I know you are dead.

Only dead things

Come into my head.


Yet I treasure our time

Though death is a crime,

The second your heart stopped

It melted, entwined —

To mine.



The waters churn.


Is my blood's yearn.


It saddens me to know

You're trapped;

My mind, 

your prison.


You look peacefully distressed.

Discomfort, but in rest.

Stationary, in trust.

Frozen, in lust.


Not a night goes by

When you don't haunt

My insides.

But I welcome you

With an open mind.
