golden dreams

when i fall asleep at night
with my hair finally loose,
i dream of golden dreams
with shimmering veils
and heart-wrenching laughs
and smiles that take my breath away
to a land that i never want to forget
where my fingers skim the surface of clear lakes
and my feet tread autumn leaves
lined upon a soft dirt road
underneath a bright blue sky
where autumn leaves fall
in a whirlwind of red yellow orange and green
into my hair and onto the ground
so i walk all night long
in this fairy-tale land,
waking up only to find
an autumn leaf in my hair
and my heart aching
for something i will never have.
