dreams or not?

waking this a.m.

fought to wake up for hours but gripped by my nightmare

of the final hours of my love’s life, the time of the boat before and how well she looked

frustrated by the on-going mind trick that I receive a call that she woke up after we left miami

and that she is home now

but when I reach to her side of the bed it is piled with her pillows but not her

why does our mind do this to us

it is so painful to do this night after night, year after year
