my fear will not allow

Last night he said look at the opportunity
said it’s time
but then I woke and it seems it wasn’t real
dream only and wake like the dead
happiness profound
all I want is to keep moving forward
keep moving on

Plus two

recesses –
I am plummeting casually.
Mind warped and desires jaded:
what interests me is what led us both astray.

Your thick fingers wrapping a noose around me –
this sense of creativity looming
mourning days, a haggard weeping
we both know what I’ve been seeking.

here: my palm stretched out to you
another offering for your box of treasures
flip the reasoning –
there is nothing left of me to give.
