Night ghost

There was a time
when you stood in my dreams most nights
like it was me
who was out of place

your words so clear
but when I woke up
they had always melted

months went by
before I realized you were gone

I still think about you
such an interesting face
my night ghost

perhaps an old husband
or a son
in my next life

strange to miss someone
who has no space
in my memory

I listened as well as I could
but the current of sleep
erased your words

I’m sorry for that
though I don’t know where
to say it.
