Please, let me sleep?

I shouldn’t let myself sleep.

I don’t really know you and yet,

In my dreams we are in love.

Different places –

A turqouise ocean,

An old heritage building,

A volcano

Always the same story –

We are great friends,

We backpack together,

We realize we have always loved each other.

We kiss.

Oh that sweet kiss!

And when I wake it’s like I’ve lost you.

And I lose you again and again


It rips me to pieces and then,

I fall in love with you instantly.

All over again.

I should be laying awake and praying

That I do not see the light of day.

You have left me such a mess.

Will I see you soon?

I know that when the story ends,

The one that’s in my head,

I’ll be alone again

Why am I so terrified of waking?

You’re gone and I feel I’ve been forsaken

In sleep is the only place I get to see you

Get to love you

Be with you

I love you.

I love you.

I love you.
