Dream stalker


You follow me in dreams

slip between my sheets

I wake in sleep to find you

then reach to feel the pillow bare


just another day in paradise.


You’re holding out for me

across the bridge of years

the troubled waters of our lives

flow silently beneath: muddied with the lies


the kisses shared, the treasure of new life

that little girl who smiles your smile

her face alight, your colour in her eyes

but she’s not mine.


What is it that you need?


Your voice reverbs down telephone wire

a memory of  nights we’ve shared

but is it all too late? To lie entwined,

stroke the cobweb of the moon


so far away & out of reach, this star we ride.
