In Dreams








He hides himself from me
cloaked in disappointment
he wades in an out of my life
leaving scraps of him for me to follow

He adores me
but won't say, won't stay
won't compromise his way to be with me
He drifts, and yet sifts the better part of me

He loves me
the way i love him back
love that stands taller than any pine tree
love that blooms in the spring, and culminates in the fall
a love for all seasons, but not for all
for only a strong woman can endure his bitter wind
his indecision
his will to win
at all costs
not knowing the game
to lose at all costs
where noone's to blame and yet he needs me

from afar
in dreams
beneath the stars
in the middle of the night
when he can no longer rest
he visits me
he seeks me
this i can attest
and i am there waiting
almost salivating
for one touch
one tear
one hug
to be near
once again...to he who needs me, but only in dreams.
