Drowsy In Dream (free verse poetry)

Drowsy,

under the lights.

We danced

under what we thought were stars.

Hand to hand, face to face.

Whispering our words

and lying through our teeth.

Tears fall and laughter catches

in our throats.

Drowsy,

in the memory of my dreams

where we’re happy and together

at last.
