soft and cool

pillow lays soft and cool
waiting for a touch,
head cradled seeking
sleep, wishful dreams,
lovely ghosts that become
real for a time, stirring comes
too soon, this story
has not reached the
end, toss and turn
trying to hold on to
the edge of sleep,
waking, pillow takes a
punch as the dream
evaporates, it will be
waiting here again
tomorrow, soft and cool
