i dreamt of a faraway boy
our arms scarce not too loose to lose, i kissed
his cheek, looked up at him
adoringly. he was here, i
swear. i know
he was there.
his eyes were softer, he called me and i,
i left him in a labyrinth with a
sky lit only with clouds

faraway boy, in love
and me, loving still
there are her curls, her smile,
no echo and she dashes following
return, return radiant,
we could have swept the
world away,
in bed the kiss
