could you be the dream

that fades before waking

drifting from memory

yet enduring through days

as a perpetual absence

that persists in emptiness

as some missing amazement

or fissure needing filled


would you come to fruition

if slumber lingered longer

or more likely to materialize

if reverie were interrupted

the dream ceased midstream


perhaps you are the sand

forever slipping through my fingers

a vaporous ethereal specter

an intangible essence of ideals


still I sleep hands outstretched
