Last night I dreamt of you again
We met in the place where this first began
When we left people behind in favor of each other
Inconsiderate now, but we couldn’t think of another
Options are hard to find when you’re too in love for peace of mind.
I met you in that place and you didn’t disappear
You pulled me close,
I breathed you in,
The whole world seemed to resume its spin
I cannot tell you the vividness of this dream.
Lifting my chin, you said to me,“When all is too much to bear, you can come and find me here. It will not go away, but you can stay, and I promise not to disappear.”
As you whispered this to me, your body acquired a kind of translucency.
Still I held onto you, as I so often do, when we’re hidden away from the world.
Waking up as you disappeared,
I knew you were still far from here.
But, still drunk on the remnants of that vision,
Something about it left me shaken
Can spirits collide in the dead of night?
Did I really see you there before we said goodbye?
As the morning brightened, sharpened my mind,
I left those fantasies behind
There’s something to say, though, about finally coming home,
Even if just for a little while
