the dreams end too soon.

always just before

satisfaction.

shreds of dream world

follow me

into

reality

and taunt me.

they are so close

just woken up from

yet so far

never again attainable.

tears were shed yet my face is

dry.

emotion residue makes my

skin

slick.

the shower

is on

quickly.

pre-gratification is

rinsed

away

corkscrewing

down

the

drain.
