May 2019
i dreamt a little dream of you.
it was somewhere cold and
looking outside through the windows,
it was evident it had been snowing for awhile.

a fading fluorescent read 7:00 pm.
it was dark outside.
we were both inside a dim bathroom.
an ornate claw-foot tub stood in the center,
filled to the brim with water.
a steady layer of steam cascaded off the surface, dissipating into the surrounding air.
you held my hand and guided me to the tub.
we stripped, a small pile of clothing forming to the side.
the water was hot and inviting.

i hugged you and you hugged me.
you ran your finger through my hair and told me everything would be alright.
i shivered from the aching cold that enveloped us.
you simply hugged me even tighter.
‘promise me, this is forever.’
you just smiled.

the most painful part,
was waking up in a pool of tears,
realizing it never happened.

you’d never know,
but i dreamt a little dream of you.
love me. please. it couldn’t have been fake...
