I DREAMED OF YOU

Posted by Dr. D , 23 August 2010 · 57 views

I have been lost in the Alps of night. . . .
The tenaments. . . .
Terraces of ancient timber. . . .
Supporting stone and mortar. . . .
Grotesquely fitted to the city below.
And it was there. . . .
I dreamed of you.

I have known hunger. . . .
Malaria, injury and fear. . . .
Huddled unashamed. . . .
In the cool slime of moonlit mud. . . .
Praying that death would pass me by.
And it was there. . . .
I dreamed of you.

I have dined at Tyrols. . . .
The sky room of the French Quarter. . . .
The revolving splendor of the Aquarius. . . .
And even so. . . .
Past the condescending waiter. . . .
And Chateau Briand. . . .
I dreamed of you.

You have been the sole beauty of my days,
You were always. . . .
To me. . . .
The example for all other women.
And life could not distribute
Its ills and fortunes enough. . . .
To end my dream of you.
