Dream Home – R.W.

Waking up in a panic, a cold sweat
I wouldn’t call it a nightmare as such
Much closer to a dream
A viewing of the perfect home, imaginary
Look how I stretch out in this bath
The details on the farm house windows
A caveat, its half way across the country
We’ll make it work, says dream me
Dream you replies, but what of our friends, family and jobs
Let’s wait for your birthday
Deflated nearly a year away
Dream me wakes into real me
It doesn’t quite make sense
Any of it
But the disappointment still lingers, the feeling of loss just as real as it was in the dream
