Email Dreams...

Some nights I do email all night long.
Long after I have gone to sleep,
and begun to dream.

Last night was that night,
with each email more complex than the last
each problem more pressing, until
it was no longer a dream, but knocking
on Nightmare, but then..

I saw an email from you, which
always makes me feel that little excited, that
little bit of happy I feel when I see one from you, wondering,
what you have to tell me.
It was a poem.

Wise, wonderful and precise,
Every word, every phrase, every stanza.
I read it over and over, because it made such perfect sense,
and was everything I needed to hear.
Like a song you want to play over. And over.
I loved you for writing me that.
And I slept. WIth out dreams. Without email.

The only problem is, now I am awake,
I can't remember.
Not a word of it.
Can you just tell me, one more time…
what you wrote?

I should not be getting this
This is virtual trash
A clutter in my mailbox
Going rabid by the moment.

I should not be getting this
But I read it all the same
If only to control, to ensure
This is not mine to claim.

I should not be getting this
And receiving it annoys me
Such a waste of my time
And digital breathing space.

I should not be getting this
And wonder how it got to me
What hiccup in the virtual server
Spewed this nonsense at me.

I should not be getting this
But I am keeping it still
As a proof of absurdity
Unwilling to trash it all the same.

There once was an assistant named Lorraine.
Who thought all email was a pain.
'Till one was versified,
Which made her smile while she cried.
That Fabulous assistant, Lorraine.

Not a very good tribute to some lovely poetry, but the best I could do.

I have nothing creative to say. I'm glad others are taking care of it.

That is awesome.

It's so nice to read so much happiness in your soul. :-)

What I find cool, is that *I* actually wrote a poem yesterday. I don't write poems nearly enough anymore. Must be something with the moon.

Very nice. *applause*

I sometimes have dreams about seeing my favourite singers.... they play a brand new song that is absolutely perfect....and then I wake up, the dream fades away and the song is gone forever.

Love the poem btw :-)

I have taken to keeping a dream diary by my bed because I love to have those dreams on hand weeks, months, years later. Lovely poem, Quiche.

At 20:07 Blogger Cecily said...

I had a dream diary by my bed but found I rarely used it, because I had to wake up enough to write and by the time that happened the dream was gone.

I love that you were able to stop/solve the nightmare within it, then write about it. :)

At 23:54 Blogger spacedlaw said...

You must have a serious email overload to dream of them too!
Good poem, though, they are the perfect way to rechannel frustration and stress. Well. Other than Roller Derby, of course.

awww I almost always tear up when I read your blog hehe

I still remember a phrase I read in a book in a dream...

"the grapes he was eating had stained his teeth lavender, which gave his aspect the gentleness that he pretended to"

I don't know why I could retain that over all of the other things I have dreamed, but it definitely stuck with me.
