The dream

I had a dream about you last night
I lay there in your arms
and for a few hours in my deepest sleep I felt completely safe
You always made me feel that way
Safe and warm
Like nothing and no one could ever hurt me
The smell of you fills me and my body tingles
I need you, I ache for you, I love you.
I’m awake now and it all comes flooding back
The worry, the pain, the hurt
But at any time I can close my eyes and remember the dream

The dream

Written January 2013

This poem became a flash fiction story inside my book The Last Hut and 29 other flash fiction stories
