Last Night I Dreamed Of You


I dreamed of your eyes
You looking at me
I dreamed of your smile
You said I was pretty
As you cupped my cheek
Touching me gently
Tilting your head
Leaning in to kiss me

I was smiling in my sleep
My heart was warmed
I was helpless and weak
And then I awoke
Feeling empty, depleted scorned

So sad I was with sleep in my eyes
Tears then followed
As I pound my fists with despise

It was bittersweet, my love
Cause you were 'my' true love
But I am not yours, was I
