What Good Are Dreams?


​Dreams come 

unbidden
breaching
the barrier
of watchful eyes
leaving remnants
of desperate desire

Dreams weave
visions so real
they illuminate
the darkness
until the light
you shun
shuts them out

Dreams as ephemeral 
as autumn mist
drifting out of sight
yet your
unseeing eyes
relive them
over and over

What else are
dreams good for,
anyway?
