“Sometimes, when I dream,
I’m reminded that you do love me.
For better or worse. You love me.”
Sometimes I dream I’m in outer space. Floating along some unseen path. But as my eyes adjust, I can see I’m not lost. There’s a moon. A blue moon, with such beautiful scars. I find myself trying to commit each one to my memory. And just before I wake, I realize that scars only add intrigue. I realize that they each have a story to tell, and when I find that I want to know those stories, I think I can finally fathom a fraction of what you feel for me when you look at me.
And maybe, those dreams are enough to remind me that you do love me. For better or worse. You love me.
