TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT (photomorph) & CROWDED OUT (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


he saunters up
and stands leaning into me
dressed only in a short
silky bathrobe, well, it's late,
I think, and sleep time's close

then the thought of how
much of his bare skin is near me
sets me atwitter
inside, like some horny teenager,
thankfully, he walks away quickly

but also sadly,
as any contact with him
is very welcome
and I sigh, going into my large
bathroom which he'd just vacated

I'd swear the absence of his presence
encloses me like smoke or incense

enough so that I almost feel like
an invader in my own bathroom

and isn't that the way of it for me
with him: he crowds me out of myself

leaving me feeling homeless when he's here
and abandoned when he's gone

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.
