I hate these short summaries. If my poem doesn't speak for itself then it is a failure.

You inhabit my dreams
  claiming squatter's rights
    on my nocturnal spirit

      Your warmth is soulhead's pillow
        your laughter - satin sheets of sinless
          joy on my body's memory

            If my sleep is good
              you are there to make it so
                to give me rest and respite

                   In the winter-length nights
                      you are mine again and again
                        we are a single entity
                           stronger than when separate
                              like weak strands of string|
                           we entwine and embrace
                         to become a rope-strong
                       tightly woven
                      line to our salvation

                    We explore forgotten things
                   we thought we knew better
                 but obviously not well enough

               It may never come to pass
             in the world of wide-awake
           that we share lives again

          But for as long as life
        permits me to have them
      You will inhabit my dreams

lovely write, Roger.

This is so intimate and universal, in this cybernetic, bizarre world fo silence. Tuff to explain to someone who has never turned one on. have written with grace straight from your soul....and thats the most honest way to write I think (but what the hell do I know lol)
like your format too, looks like an arrow, is that supposed to be phallic, or is it just me? lol what you say............pax A

I would welcome such dreams - welcome the feeling of support, security, sharing - even if just in a dream. It would serve to fortify my spirit throughout the lonely daylight hours. Well conceived and presented.

A gorgeous offering, Roger with no further explanation required. Your images are vivid and your painful longing woven deeply into each verse. There are those who remain within our heart always, no matter the physical distance. Sometimes all we can do to ease the pain of their absence is dream and hope that the tears of joy that stain our pillow will carry us through our time of wide-awake.
Take care,

"soulhead's pillow" ... "the world of wide-awake"... You expose your inner self and with your poetic phrasing cause an imprint on the reader. The ache is palpable, but very quiet, too.

You have a gift, Roger. katy xox
