a dream to savor

last night, i dreamt you up with budding beauty in your eyes.
i held you by the waist in a flushed embrace.
then pulled you close to rest my head on your shoulder.
and you did not shutter.

instead, you seemed to savor it, just as i did.

and now ive have come to return to the world which is real.
littered with guilt, vile, and zeal.
but i still have you in my mind.
that dream will serve to remind
me that someday soon we will find
a way together.

was it by chance that those words fell from his mouth?
like a mocking fate that does try to clout
our fragile legs as we follow this stream
that leads us to a common golden rain tree
where we will sit beneath for all eternity.
