Reassurance

The rain carried a sorrowful dream
brought back by the underground smell.
It showed my past where love had given
only ruptured promise.
Awakening in present was strange
with forgotten reality so near.
Bedroom blackness engulfed;
yielded fear of painful past as now.
Familiarity erased amnesia
I was home again,
the blackness merely darkness—
shattered dream, a nightmare.
