the dreamer and the taker


there came a time when you spoke to me of your desires

whispers in the night fell from your lips like raindrops

i gathered them all, every one, into my right hand

to you, i extended my left


when the time came that you spoke to me of your dreams

i feasted upon them, as a child feasts upon cake

so sweet to the tooth were your words of hope

soft beneath my feet as i trod upon them, every one


and when moonbeams brought through my window

every need you ever had

i bathed in their silvery light

so velvety were they to the touch

how very little you had asked for

how precious little you would receive


off through time, we went, together

the dreamer of dreams and the taker

yet falling off the same cliff

who could have known

that only one would meet his maker
