#RIME-TIME: Just a Dream

From the writer: “This was me taking a step towards understanding that people aren’t the fantasies you create about them.”

Just a dream

in my dream, you were holding me 

your rough, calloused hands gently

held my cheeks as if i were made of

glass and with one wrong move,

you could shatter me.

in my dream, you were perfect

you were funny, but never over-stepped

the boundaries i had put up so long ago

you were kind, but never too kind

to avoid people walking over you.

in my dream, she was not there and

your heart did not belong to her

you did not sing her praises at every opportunity

you did not tell me about how pretty she was 

or how much you wished she was yours.

in my dream, you told me you’d

choose me over everyone and anything

you told me that even though your heart had been broken 

more times than what you could count, 

even though it’s barely being held together by a delicate string,

you’d still give it to me.

and in that moment

i believed you,

everything was okay.

but it was just a dream .
