Some nights when I dream of you,
I realize I’m dreaming, so I talk to you
like we no longer do, ask you
the questions you will not answer
in the waking world, hold you
until you vanish when my eyes open.
Scott Hughes has a book of poetry, The Universe You Swallowed Whole, out now and a new book coming out in September, Horrors & Wonders, so please visit www.writescott.com.
