I’m drifting in and out
of daydreams of you
misty, diaphanous
silk screens of two
Lovers alive and in love with a moment
that breaks like the waves pushed over an ocean
I’m living a vision
of red-tinted lust
that pales to a white colored
daydream of us
Lying together sharing touches and secrets
and laughing and kissing our gentle atonements
I’m drifting with someone
only a ghost
he doesn’t exist here
without me to host
And the pity I feel tingeing my thoughts
is the only reality this daydream has brought.
