You whisper the perfect words
Make my insides warm and tingly
Your smile makes me blush
I know what you’re thinking
I crawl across the bed
To give you everything

You take it
And you give back to me.

But none of it is real.


With a yawn I open my eyes
Wishing my dream never ended
My hand covers my sad heart
My sigh nearly brings tears
I turn my head on the pillow
And see you lying beside me

Your eyes open
And you reach for me.

Everything is real.

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 Hawaii where she could learn to surf. 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.

  2. Nice fall and rise to this… Just when you’re sad at the ‘ending’ you take it back into the light! Wonderful! ❤

  4. Beautifully done – the shift between reality and dream. Life is so grand when the subtle shift from one to another (dream/reality) almost feels like one in the same.
