you and i met
in a dream last night,
and i wanted to love you
there—
when you called me beautiful,
when you showed your honor,
when you finally became the man
we had always hoped you could
be.

but then i awoke
and had to take my love away,
for i suddenly remembered you are not
that man at all;
he’s a ghost,
a mere shadow.
(he doesn’t exist
and i don’t think he ever will.)
