Bright Eyes and Dark Skies

written by: Gray Skies



I dreamt of you last night, here in my city; my refuge.
I woke in the dark, breathless, feeling both relief and anguish that the dream had ended.

You were here with me, the you I had always wanted, bright smiles and light eyes under dark skies and high rises. I felt the loss of you anew.

I lay alone in the dark, struggling to pull myself back to my current life.

These memories of you can hold me hostage.
Am I beginning to heal, or forgetting what was real?
