last night you were in another of my dreams
this time appearing as a ghost
crying in the bathtub.
i asked you to talk
and you ignored me,
as i used to fear you would
was it on purpose this time,
or did you not know who i was?
do you even remember who you are like this?
your form changed and you screamed towards me,
as though words couldn’t form correctly
and this was your only way of communicating.
i think i’d like to see you again in person,
even if only to halt these dreams,
but i feel it would change nothing, just as always.
