Perchance to Dream, Again
From the buzz I felt, half-awake,
sipping water mid-night.
To my bones, my joints aching
to move as they did mid-dream.
Goosebumps telling me,
“It’s not over. Go back to sleep.”
Signs I heed, yet traces slip away
as I struggle to grasp them.
I piece together what’s left,
intent on returning to something
already gone, only to find a new tale
in this writer’s reality.
