Last night I dreamed.
Everything was picture perfect, beautiful, lovely.
Last night I thought
that someone was here with me, out in the snow,
to make my journey seem a little less cold.
Last night I smiled,
drowned in beauty, pierced by perfection,
yet feeling so much mirth as I sank into the abyss.
Last night I lied.
I told myself I wouldn't be alone when I awoke,
made myself believe, yearn, and hope.
Last night I hoped
that I could stay forever in that moment of perfection and peace.
Last night I dreamed...
That someone loved me.
