“Awake”

I’d been there
a million
times before.

So familiar,
more nonfiction
than lore.

I stood
there
all alone.

Until a gentle touch
warmed my waist
to the bone.

A whisper
to my ear
of words with no recall.

You moved away
but always back
if I were to fall.

I’d been here
a million times
before.

But everything wasn’t
real to me
anymore.

Locked eyes
meeting
across the room.

Caused a
rush of thoughts
to bloom.

The only real
ones there
were us.

We were still
in all
the fuss.

You
were so
real.

Only
you were my dreams
to steal.
