A Portrait of You

I had a dream about you last night.
I dreamt that we were swimming in an ocean
made up of the tears
collected from dreams such
as this.
I held your hand, climbed onto your back
and closed my eyes,
waiting for you to carry me to solid ground again.
Instead you dove under the water and
I fell.

You swam away,
in the general direction of Assumed Goodbye.
I wanted to call out to you,
but I had no words.
So I swam.
In the general direction of Lost Without You.

Startled and awake, I started to cry.
Painting the story of my lonliness
with my mascara-ed eyes and my watercolored tears
on the canvas of my pillow.
And when I looked at what I'd drawn
it was a portrait of you.
