Dreaming

Matt Phillips

Deakin University

Cupped to a body; longing

For my other,

Half-covered,

Under Cupid’s wing,

Stupid thing;

Dreaming.

Matt Phillips’s writing is about connection and catharsis. His strongest desire is to reach the reader’s deepest essence; that place where only light can grow. Though always in its infancy, his craft is his means of intimacy. Through a mantra of rhyme, each piece seeks to touch and heal. His poems are best read aloud.
