Without Instructions | #CapturedInWords

Margate Kent Thanet Amusement Park

I had a dream about you last night
In the Carlisle general store
You were the candy bar
The cereal
Even the toothpaste

Reading the instructions 
An advert of your handsome face 
Spoke to me 
In animation 
Breathlessly, excited 
Filled with promises 

Even in sleep 
I thought 
'That isn't like you, is it?' 
But what do I know 
What do I know 
Of this secret, silent man 

Who comes to me 
In animation 
Eloquently, lovingly 
Without instructions
And leaves again
Without a single promise
