Your Violet Hair Ribbon

by on August 22, 2019 :: 0 comments

Last night you slept with your head on my chest
My nose in your hair.

While I dozed the violet ribbon upon my wrist
Broke and fell off. This morning I searched for it
But could not find it, anywhere. I tied a new one
To my ankle. Hid another in my journal cover.

Did you have the same dream I did last night?
You with your head on your husband’s chest,
My wife with hers on mine.

A ribbon of deception; identities mistaken, lovers mismatched. So hard to awaken… – mh clay
