dream

eyes slipping under their covers,

body as heavy as a boulder.

as i drift away,

i hear

you whisper adulations

if you were

here.

in spirit

your arms

wrap tightly around

my depleted figure.

as crickets chirp

in the dark,

my mind drifts

as i open the gate to

a land often forbidden –

filled with dreams and hopes.

you walk with me,

hand in hand,

our smiles the only

lumen needed to

see the path before us.

as we open the door

at the end of the path,

step through,

my mind relinquishes

itself to somnolence

but not before

a faint smile

passes across my lips.

on the other side of this door

in the middle of nowhere,

you are mine

and i am yours.

my body shifts

as an exultant exhale

soars past my lips

into the wild.

    Truly beautiful <3 I love the short, simple sentences and phrases it's broken into, it gives it a good flow and appropriates the moon. Really amazing work
