long nights (part 1) ©

I laid to rest our love last night,

cried myself to sleep. 

When I awoke I was surrounded by the trees, deep meadows of green. 

You were here with me

and on your face was life and gleam,

no words left to speak. 

You just smiled, showing all your teeth

but the light in you quickly diminished, 

it was all a dream.
