"I Dreamt of You"

I dreamt of you last night       
vivid images       
sitting across from you at a table       
your hands toying restlessly with a cup of stale coffee        
impatient for a cigarette in this smoke free room       
the scent of your perfume mingles with dust and mold       
as you laugh at my inane joke        
my attempt to tease you away from your grief       
I dreamt of you last night        
a muted mirage       
mimicking reality       
your haunted eyes deep set and dark      
desperately darting here-and-there      
avoiding my scrutiny as I peer through your façade       
sensing sorrow under your kind words       
as you offer support and comfort to me      
I dreamt of you last night
