Her Poetry: Dreams



Extracting someone’s dreams
Is a very tricky art;
The smallest hint of contact
And those dreams will fall apart.

The fabric of your thoughts
Can be sensitive to touch;
When it combines with flesh and air
The abstract turns to dust.

Trickling through your fingers
Dreams will form a thick cement,
To penetrate their meaning
You must hold them at arm’s length.

To understand a dream
Is to catch a falling cloud;
You grasp it in the moment
Soon to realise you’re without.
