Dreams can be nightmares too.
I had a dream last night. I dreamt that I was by your side in the dewy morning grass.
Looking at the stars I realized I was dreaming not by counting my fingers or realizing that "hey the sky doesn't have stars in California" but by realizing that you would never be by my side.
As We lay there taking in the Imaginary moment, I memorized the details of your face as if I was looking at a map and I was lost. you looked into my eyes and I studied yours like the stars.
They were every bit as beautiful and explosive. I embraced you one last time before embracing what was real. And then awoke, without you once more.
