I woke up in the middle of the night

Dreams about you can feel as unsettling

As the most terrible nightmares

Do know that I dread dreaming 

About your fearless smile

And flirty eyes

As much as I’m afraid of gigantic spiders crawling

Up my skin

But I can’t help it, can I? I close my eyes and I see you

Rising out of an emerald water, alive and laughing in the spray

A diminished moon lays against my window

Casting light the color of skim milk 

Over my neverending dreaming 

Of you.
