Published in Poem Of The Day

for letting me know
for waking up to remember that you dreamed
I never wake up when I dream of you

What woke you up
was it someone
else's body?

A small thrill a little secret is ours
a desire for safe travel
in unspilled blood

About this poem
"Don't you find it intriguing when someone tells you they had a dream about you? There are those who can't even sleep in order to dream."
