I dreamt of us as two intertwined thoughts
Memories of two different times,
Stuck together like pages in a book,
So close in their content that you can’t tell them apart.
I dreamt we were two sides of a sentence
One side just touching the other
With just a conjunction in between
to cool the fire.
I dreamt we were two years that culminated with one perfect day.
I dreamt you were dreaming too…
I dreamt we were sideways glances from strangers
That accidentally met across an intersection
In busy traffic, busy
As the universe – but which
Stops and suspends itself sometimes, for us.
I dreamt we weren’t dreaming at all, but
Falling across distances to a place in common
Outside the physical.
And when I woke, you were there
When you woke, I was there.
How distance loves to strain love until we ache-
And like a string, snap us back together again.
