I was lying on the couch

enjoying the last warmth in late autumn

a heavy somnolence descended on me.


An unknown period of time passed

I woke up from the darkness

full of chagrin


it's like sometimes

I dreamt about my dad,

and the moment I woke up,

the consciousness was in a trance

the emotions were all numb.


can I go back to that dream?
