She Tried to Visit A Poem

She came last night   

The color of chalk   

Her face   

Her body   

Her long flowing gown   

A veil covering her face   

I recognized her      


Glad to see her   
Jumping in my sleep   

Not scared   

Just startled      

She misunderstood   

Thinking I was scared   

Left as quick as a heartbeat   

Like a hummingbird   

Come back I cried   

She didn’t   


Waking up   

Not knowing if it was real   

Or a dream
