Somnus . . . Somnium*

by G. Jack Urso

tears of sweat on my brow alight

often when i wake at night

like the rain from a grey sky

pours into pools of lingering sighs

my dreams are streams

that flow and ebb

from depths into seams

at the edge of my bed

i dread the night i caress alone

while my mind takes flight to parts unknown

i’ll feel your hand across my back

then fall asleep to dream of that

* Sleep . . . Dream
