Dream

I was meant to hug that man.
My body molded into his
in just the right way,
I felt like I could
stay there forever….
Safe, in his arms.

But it was only a dream.

  1. I love that there are at least two possible interpretations for this short: Either this is someone she’s only seen in her dreams. Or he’s a real person that she’s fantasizing over but he doesn’t notice her/he’s already taken.

    Either way, great short! Thought-provoking in all the right ways (as usual). 😀

    1. I like your viewpoints. It’s always nice to have more than one interpretation. The book refers to a real person she once new, and they are sharing a dream together, both conscious of what is happening, even though it’s not technically real.

  2. happens to the best of us. funny how we never include these nocturnal affairs when asked ‘how many people have you gone out with.’ but that opening line blows the piece right open. how could she not control the dream to hug him. or it could also mean she couldn’t hug him in her conscious state but did in her subconscious state – like we all do. tricky! nice exercise for the brain.
