Breath & Shadow

A collection of my poems, some dark, some on the lighter side, some new, some previously published, and some I like to call "Brautigans," after one of my favorite poets. Hope you'll enjoy them!

19. In the Shadow of Your Dreams

I remember my hand
Swallowed by your palm
Did not like being pulled along
Always one step behind
In your shadow
I remember nights
When you turned to me
Whispering a name I did not recognize
Squirming away from your soft arms
Always beneath her
In the shadow of your dreams.
