[Our Paper Hearts]

last night,
I had a dream
about us
in the
biggest bathtub;
we were sailing
in paper sailboats,
dressed as sailors,
from
head to toe
in paper

to pass time,
we
wrote
love letters
to each other
on our bleached
clothes

I built
a paper
telescope
so you could
see beyond
me in the
water

You must
have seen
something
more beautiful
than me,
because
you jumped off
our boat
into depths

of

which

your

toes

could

never

reach

I knew
we would
die,
but I
swam
after you.


The author's comments:
I actually had this dream; I dream so rarely, and the vision was so lucid, that I could not help but to put it into words.

I hope that making it non-fiction isn't misleading; no, I did not, unfortunately, even sojourn around on a paper sailboat. Now that I think of it, it would be quite a delightful experience.

I really like this poem. I can't believe you actually dreamed this...although if I put my dreams into words it'd be a lot weirder...don't think i wanna explore that.

Good Work...Keep dreaming!
