a dream within a dream within a dream

After dawn had tinged the nightsky

on a birdsong-filled the morning

I dreamt that I woke

to your caress,

feeling your hand warm through the silk

and cool against my bare skin.

But I dreamt.

buddha

And in my dream

you whispered me awake

telling me the story of our first night together.

Candlelit, voluptuous

velvet darkness.

Of beauty that lit up your soul.

buddha

And as I turned to you,

I woke again.

buddha

Am I still within a dream?
