You were in my dreams again last night.
You always seem to be in my dreams these days.
Because when we were together,
I don’t remember dreaming of you,
But maybe that’s because my dreams had come true
And I was with you everyday,
Loving, laughing, learning, living.
Now that I made the mistake of letting you go,
The universe decides to punish me every night
With images of what we could’ve been
And replays of what we had been
And possibilities of what we should’ve been.
I cannot blame the universe
For you haunting my dreams.
I can only blame myself.
Because every morning when I wake up
From another dream,
Another world where we’re still together
And I didn’t screw up and you still loved me,
I go through my day
Looking forward to putting my head back on my pillow
So my mind can take me away from this place where I have to see you everyday
And know that I cannot touch you anymore,
Where I have to listen to you everyday
And know that you aren’t speaking to me,
Where I have to look at you laugh
And know that I am not the reason for it,
Where there is no us.
My dreams have become my favorite place,
Because when I’m asleep anything is possible.
You were in my dreams again last night,
And I wouldn’t be surprised if we met again the next time I close my eyes.
