There are many dreams I've had about our relationship
I dreamed that your friends liked me, or even got to meet me. I dreamed that I was the only girl for you.
Then I wake up
And your friends have never met me, and I'm still covered in bruises.
I dream that the only times you touch me are in love
I dream that you only hug me, and kiss me, and hold my hand, and do all of the sickeningly adorable things and PDA that all couples do.
I wake up covered in bruises
I remember that you think that hitting me is love. I remember that dreams are just that. Dreams. I don't want to get out this relationship because this is what I have come to believe love means.
I dream of friends who are jealous of our relationship
I wake remembering that you made me push all of my friends away. I still imagine that they would be jealous of our relationship, even though I truly know that they would pity me.
One day I was sick of my dreams just being dreams.
I didn't want to spend my life waiting to go to sleep so I could dream of a better life. I left and I hoped that it would make my dreams come true.
My dreams didn't come true though.
I still dreamed of a happy relationship where my friends were jealous of my happiness . I was just lonely, and sometimes I thought of going back to you. Then I met him.
I met the man that made my dreams come true.
He let me met his friends, and they all liked me. I never woke up covered in bruises. Our friends are even jealous of our relationship.
But most of all I am happy for the first time in years.
I no longer long for sleep so I can dream of a good life and relationship. I am happy and safe, and it is so much better than I've ever dreamed of.
