Benched in Reverie


I lay in bed and close my eyes
That’s when you flood my thoughts.
No matter how I try to fight,
I see a picture taken from the first night our paths crossed.

I try to remember where your hands were
Those hands that since held mine.
Those same hands that pulled me closer
When I woke up scared that night.

I can still see the glint in your stare
That forever claimed me yours.
That captivation held me there
And made me want you more.

Fleeting glances
Lost romances
And love that cannot be.
Star-crossed dances
Second chances
My pain in reverie.

When you close your eyes,
Is that what you see?

I’m sure you do not dream of me.
