alternate reality.


In my other life
You find me first
Our timing is perfect
Fate is reversed
In a different world
No secrets are hidden
We can have each other
No touch forbidden
In another dimension
We have a special place
Our every obstacle gone
Gates open, roadblocks erased
In a realm unknown
I’ve no need to imagine
Because I’m in your arms
Drowning in passion
In my land of dreams
We’re more than a thought
Our bodies, flesh and bones
Own every desire we fought
In our magic kingdom
Every part of me sings
Our love rules over all
Me the queen and you my king

In another time
You belong to me
Together as destined
You and I – forever we

heart swirl.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  7. Dream love is the Best! He is always amazing, loving, tender, attentive and completely focused on you. In reality, he makes disgusting sounds and smells, leaves shit everywhere, doesn’t listen and forgets important dates. So, stick with the dream love.

    This is beautiful and the sentiment, heartfelt and relatable. The love in our dreams is always perfect. I think in my case because it’s actually me giving them the words I want to hear. I guess my ex wife was right, I am in love with my own bullshit. 😁😆
