Dreams?

By: Joe Attanasio 2011

 

 

 

I was deep down exhausted that night

My head hit the pillow, I went out like a light

Darkness engulfed me

My mind floating in a cold dark sea

 

I woke with a start

A pounding in my heart

Knew not where I was

My brain filled with fuzz

 

My consciousness returned

My head took a turn

My brain shuttered in fear

For you were not near

 

I listened with intent

I didn’t know where you went

I heard not a sound

You were nowhere around

 

I got a lump in my throat

I started to choke

I yelled out your name

Just silence, the same

 

My thoughts were so dread

Could you be dead

Where have you gone?

It was almost dawn

 

I woke with a start

A pounding in my heart

Was it a dream, I shook

To terrified to take a look

 

I closed my eyes and turned my head

Opened them slowly at the bed

I could see a hump and some hair

Oh my god! You were there

 

I did not lie back down to sleep

I raised my hand, a tear to sweep

At your form I stared

Oh my god! You were there
