I had a dream, and I saw her
She was humming a melody.
When I woke up at 2:40 am
I realized I'd been trying to catch her all along.
I collected my things
I sorted through them and laid them out for her.
She took notes.
I held on anxiously.
She was pink under the lights,
Her tears hidden in the grains.
You are my everything,
You make me feel alright, she said.
I took her hand,
Held my breath until the the end of her song.
I wake up, it's 5:05 am.
I realize I'd been trying to catch her all along.
