COME BACK TO ME
Do not try to wake me,
for I cannot sleep.
The dreams that come to you
are my roadways.
Listen carefully for a sound
that you will not hear.
I stand before you in daylight
and you do not see.
I am as real as the stone,
as powerful as fire.
That you no longer believe
will not save you.
for I am part of you,
unbidden,
secret,
knowing.
Cold shivers run up your spine.
Do not fear.  I can wait.
for you, as always, will come,
Come back to me.
into my embrace, my love
until we are one.
We will cast our shadows
on your tomb.
- Chris Ambrose
