Overwhelming Obstacles

You came again, in dreams,

No sense of time or propriety.

These years, they fall between,

And some are crouched inside of me.


You speak to me in tones

Of intimacy, filial familiarity.

In visions you are home,

My singular expression of family.


We walk the sandy banks

Open speech, laughter free,

No unknowns, and this outranks

The gaps in our proximity.


We stay so close. I do not run

Or hide what I feared you might see.

Our reunion cannot be outdone

By any other urgency.


I bask in you, your strength,

And need no other society

Than your eyes devouring mine at length,

Sparkling with jocularity.


I try to stare, eyes open wide.

You’re washed out with a wave of anxiety.

Pain recedes into the great divide

That drowns our commonalities.


We are one with our formalities,

But your visits are more cruel than silence.
