Last Night – Written Saturday 8th May 1999 (Aged 24)

Last Night

i had a dream last night
you were there,
talking to me on the telephone
but the more i talked
the more distant and the more faint –
your voice became
till eventually i found myself shouting
yet, you could not hear me
and you would not answer my question
aren’t dreams telling?
dreams are the truth
dreams have left me feeling weird
dreams come in a flash
dreams are what i fear
dreams in the night
dreams often feel strange
but often they feel somehow right
dreams provide an answer
just like they did last night
