she laughed at first to think
the waking world imposes on my dreams.
it's sad she said, that you
can't just have fun at night when you're asleep.
you see, in dreams, for her,
she lives a different life than this one here,
since sometimes i'm not there
she's free to kiss whoever comes along.
it's not that i don't cheat
it's just that i feel guilty in the dream
for what i'm doing. she
had taken other lovers in her sleep
but never thought it strange.
and when we woke, she kissed me and she said,
i had the weirdest dream
last night. she told me how it went and when
she finished i kissed her.
i never had a dream like that before,
she said. i know i have.
and somehow that she had one makes me glad.
