Euphoria of Dreaming

by Nicole D Gregory

How do I begin
admitting something
only I feel
obsessed with the nothingness
just knowing you exist

Fear of the written word
taking it from the space
inside me that somehow
feels so hollow
but so crammed with
phrases that circle
behind my eyes

~I am a listener
~I hear for everyone
look at what I've captured
sense my loss

Live the contradiction
with me
and I would be outside
your door ~ as your name implies
and you could walk over me
without a second thought

Your words were
about to begin
at this time I need you
to forget them
find the real me
~I won't hide~
Just sit quietly
wait for the sun
knowing you're already awake
If you really wanted
to know me
~I would honestly tell you~

I go downtown
among the crowd
~I am alone~
am I really that delicate
and fragile ~ so easily bruised
Anxiously waiting to hear
from you
You sent me your fears
and the storm was frightening
leaving me wet

I take off my clothes
I strip my heart out
I stand before you
