Dream and the Other
Self-contradiction,sudden loss of love, smothered sparks of hope…
Sweeping momentum, no return, nor escape,
Too spell-bond to change perspective.
Till you cry, out of a dream
awoke beside your infant girl
to her empty grip, her giggle, her unconscious smile
Nothing but pure pleasure, to her name
Wealth, fame, power, lust.
Hatred, jealousy, deception, or doubt.
You lock them up in the past,
As turning over the wet pillow,
