through the window …


Shaken from painful slumber
Arms reaching out
Finding air

Words form without sound
Into circles of darkness

Defused moonlight
From a broken shade

Slowly the room with its
Familiar shadows return

Dreams splatter against walls
Shadows recede to corners

I sit up and it begins
Retracing the dream

Worn pathways to
Endless corridors

Of unanswerable questions
Believing naively

After all these years
You finally have a name

    The picture compliments the poem nicely. I really like this poem, it has so much heartache in it.
