Last night I dreamt of you.
It’s one of those dreams that are so vivid, so real I know the feelings from that dream will remain etched in my memory a long time.
In that dream, I saw you, I felt you, I smelt you. You were real and you were you: untrusting, faraway, wary.
I’m trying to catch a picture or should I say a scene from that dream right now but for some reason, it eludes me.
I know it’s there, buried deep somewhere. it will resurface when I am not expecting it to, snippets popping up in my mind at odd times.
These feelings are here though, deep inside of me. it feels like I just saw you.
I am going through the motions of the day and every once in a while my heart misses a beat and then I stop to wonder why and then it comes in flashes before the eyes of my heart.I remember you and my heart twists and then my eyes water.
Some days I think I am better then I scroll through the pictures on my phone and I see you, I see us, I see the smile on my face and then I remember the way I felt that day
Like I could take on the world, that as long as I was with you everything was alright with the world, with me, with you, with us.
Like I would stand by you through thick and thin and as long as you would let me.
Last night I dreamt of you, this morning I listen to Beyoncé’s ” Dreaming” and like she would say “I feel like I’m alive”.
