Repeated Dreams

Peanuts-style cartoon figure with sad face

loss and betrayal
in a town of dead-end streets
I wake with relief


with no enjoyment
I wake ashamed


bits of my body
weaken, fester and fall off
I wake in horror


outside looking in
the sash window slams down
I wake angry


neglected baby
dying in a back bedroom
I wake filled with guilt


a long-lost friend
denies me, turns away
I wake in tears


under the apple tree
dappled roleplay with my dolls
I wake to Autumn
