    The train pulled into the station
    Unlike the movies
    There was no smoke from which you appeared
    You just stepped off the train
    Graceful
    Plain pumps preceding lovely legs
    Supporting a lovely body
    A lovely smile was on your lovely face
    A small carry-on bag matched your purse
    The gloomy train station now became stylish
    You were there
    I watched you approach the main rotunda
    Slightly bobbing my head with the rhythm of your steps
    In a strange way
    It was more exciting just watching you
    Than to join you in a sweet embrace
    But the growing number of morning commuters
    Obstructed my view
    I’ll find you
    Dodging my way through briefcases, coffee and doughnuts
    I came close to where my eyes just left you
    In your place was a three-piece suit
    Worn by a lifeless man in glasses
    Pale skin replaced your ebony silkness
    You were gone
    I searched and searched
    My heart beating faster than my feet were moving
    Pain and fear etched on my face
    My body drenched with sweat
    Where did you go?
    I screamed your name
    Oh no
    I opened my eyes sitting up in the same movement
    The dream was over
    There you were
    With me
    You never left

    BE
