“Cause everywhere I seem to be, 
I am only passing through ,
I dream these days about the sea ,
always wake up feeling blue, 
wishing I could dream of you.”

by me

bed sheets tossed and half hanging down
somewhere beneath your hand shows through
fingers folded inward as if holding on tightly
to something left unseen
watching with a wonder of new sight
wishing I knew how to sketch what I see
because I want to take this moment with me
this early morning memory
of this temporary room
the morning’s light painting shadows on the wall
your hand just there hanging on
my keys on the bedside table
the only reality interrupting
as I lay here next to you for the last time
wanting so much more
