recurring dream

recurring dream

lucid, this vision, my one
remaining connection

his face pale,
in shades of charcoal

fading, even as I wake
a blank page, waiting

for darkness to return,
the years erased

This is my response to The Secret Keeper’s Weekly Writing Prompt #175,
with the words charcoal, shade, pale, wake & lucid.
