The Persistence of Dreams

A dream returns.

Vague, but shimmering with familiarity.

Lingering, then gone

As the alarm blares.

Reality deflating your ethereal bubble.

The love long forgotten

Reappearing in a face you don’t know,

But you’re certain it’s him.

A scene cut short

As the day intrudes.

Labor and duty.

Routine and numbness

Rule the day as you hope for the night

And a return of the dream of lost love.
