Elusive Dreams


So softly, silently searching

Wondering whether, what-if….

no nonsense needed  –

Now !

Woken up from a deep sleep

I am left with a sense of loss.

Just what was it that

I was searching for?

It was – so important.

It hovers tantalisingly close

on the edge of memory.

Elusive to the end

I am left bereft

of the knowingness.

Feeling  unsettled

strangely disturbed

wanting to catch

the taunting will-o-the-wisp

Tortured, twisting turnings

leave me tangled in the sheets.

Eventually exhaustion enfolds

returning me to

continue my search.
