LAST NIGHT by jjméndez

Last Night

Your presence
relentlessly 
followed me
throughout 
the night
while I
was deep
in my sleep.

Everywhere 
I went
you were 
there next
to me
wrapped
in a wavering 
bright neon
white robe
whispering
a rainbow 
of rhyming
silken words
flowing like
a wild river
filled with
beautiful
exotic phrases
in a florid
language
I could not
discern
but clearly
conveying
the ecstasy
of your
essence
like a 
soft
blanket
enveloping
my soul.


All night
I tossed 
and turned
and embraced 
and squeezed
my pillow 
thinking
it was you
and I
wished
you would
never leave
my side.

But then 
I woke
and realized
you were 
just a dream
inside the
very same
dream you
and I 
were in
while
I was
still 
deep
in my sleep…
