a way to explore thoughts, usually first thing in the morning.

sixteen jan

in this particular dream,
she is beautiful.
(ok, yes. in every dream,
she is beautiful.)
she is beautiful,
and she loves me so much,
my pleasure & happiness
are all that matter to her.
i am grateful
(in this particular dream),
but, when i awake
to the usual
loneliness & self-loathing,
i am so sad
to be back in this ugly reality,
i am glad she is just
a beautiful dream;
otherwise, i might hurt her
for the lies she tells me
every night
in beautiful dreams.
