dreams (the whiskeytown version!)

Sometimes, there’s nothing worse than waking up in the night.
Half asleep, still meandering through your dream,
You try to make sense of your surroundings.
Instead, you find yourself stuck on a thought,
So firmly embedded your whole body burns with it.

It can be anything.
An itch you need to spend the rest of your life scratching all of a sudden.
A fear you can’t quite name.
More of a color or feeling than a concrete idea.
A disquieting out-of-body sense in the relative silence of the apartment.

It comes to me after fighting off feelings.
Love, lack of love...sometimes it all blurs together.
Lust may be a better word, but in a very abstract way, you understand.
Funny how sleep breeds obsession.
You’d think it would be the other way around.
