You unexpectedly run your fingers gently along the side of my face and, knowing me well, before I can think to question you about it, you place your lips upon mine and we kiss.
When we slowly pull away we are breathless and I open my eyes to the dark emptiness of my room.
And realize it was only a dream.
Now, I lay awake undecided.
Am I more afraid that I won’t have that dream again…
…Or that I will.
