It seems like it has been a long time since I dreamed you like that. Dreamed you calm and whole.
It's been years since I whispered to you across a dreamscape, I thought you were dead.... it's been forever since you simply smiled back.
I should have known when I breathed a sigh of relief of that it was finally August, that my mind wasn't going to let me pass it off that easily.
In my dream I kept asking you where you lived.
In my dream I was 2 hours and 1 minute late for work.
In my dream I was offering you my old bedroom, in our old house so you could live closer to me.
I woke to my 5 am alarm. A dark, hot second day of August intending to go for a run but never leaving the house.
It's as if all the out-running of July caught up with me today. My morning rose with wet silence. The sky slowly peeling back the darkness of night. Whatever it was I thought I was going to get done today has drifted off into the desert. And I don't even have the energy to want to follow.
