dormant

I watch you float away

Not a thing I can do

Once your mind claimed

It takes ahold of you

I spent weeks away

Bitter at the thought of you

You think back at the moment

When the shift took place

 

We talked of leaving this place

Dreamed of travel by plane

I tried to take us away

 

What we dreamed of:

We dreamed of India

Dreamed of the Bay

Dreams of Westfalia

They lay dormant today

 

Dreams in Malibu

Dreams by fire

Dreams in a teepee

Dreams in a Giant Sequoia

Dreaming asleep on Zuma

Dreaming above the Greek

Dreaming on two wheels

Dreams of ink

 

Dreams of the deepest connection

Dreams of haunting eye contact

Dreams of dancing in the shower to John Denver

 

The dreams ended there

But you’re still my muse
