• A field trip to the scene of a crime,
    you came with me
    but I didn't know you well.
    I had only met you once before,
    in another dream.

    You asked what happened,
    I tried to explain
    only before your lips grazed mine.
    You were a few years older,
    but I kissed you back.

    We then hugged awkwardly
    and I told you the truth,
    and you said you loved me too.
    You gave me flowers
    I gave you the kindness you've never gotten anywhere.

    Boy in the dream,
    I woke up crying
    because I realized you weren't real.
