Shadowing A Daydream

Guy's daydreaming
Guy’s daydreaming

I searched for you
in the shade of the jumbled roots
and under boughs knotted with red strands
of barren hopes

in the musty breath of an ancient library
where my footsteps hushed themselves

hand in hand with a heart
that had learned to mute its beats

in the corridors of a memory where a breeze tugged
playfully at the tendrils of a dream, utterly undone

under the rain-soaked arch of allamanda flowers
spilling over a ramshackle gate of reason

I looked in every place where I was certain
you wouldn’t be
certain that you would always be there 
wherever I cannot be
