My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

November 12, 2010 “dream forgotten”



“dream forgotten”


I awoke in the middle of a dream

in the midst of some scape

a fleeting vision

of happiness


or maybe sad darkness

a foggy memory

the fog entering

through my sleepy eyes

as they open

the dream fades into the mist

my heart

vibrating in my chest

like butterfly wings

reaching for the phone

by my bed

a familiar ringing

in my head

it was her ring

I smiled a sleepy smile

as my hand reached

I heard the ringing

the far away ringing

from deep in the fog

the sad foggy darkness

of a dream


or forgotten

  5. It’s such a nice kind of dreamy … and you’ve captured that “foggy” sense well. Nice work!
