City Dream, Country Dream

Shutting out the world,
Eyes closed tight.
I feel your arms around my chest.
Your warm wheeze down my neck.
Your fingers tracing hearts on my thigh.

Light invades
As my eyes pop open.
I’m here; you’re there.
You’re having a slow reality
Wrapped in the fertility of country spring.
I’m running a race
Among the ruins of urban decay in a mad world.

Neither of us is together where we belong.
I can’t hold my breath and wait.
Soon, lover, soon…
I’ll wrap your arms around me
For the reality of where I’ve always belonged.
